Due to a reported case of the Coronavirus in Olmsted County, we are suspending all events at the Spirituality Center until further notice. We are doing so as a precaution, in respect for the residents and staff at Assisi Heights. Thank you for your understanding. Please check back often, as the situation may change.
Beginner’s Bird Sleuth Explorer Class and Contest
May 16, 10:30am-12:30pm
Canticle Park Gazebo, Assisi Heights
10:30am drop off – 12:30pm pick up with 20 minutes after class for parental discussion about future birding opportunities.
For bird sleuths, ages 8-12 years. Limited to 10 participants.
We are excited to announce that the MN DNR has approved a grant for “No Child Left Inside.” This grant allows 10 children to receive a pair of binoculars, MN Field guide, a logbook, and registration fee.
This event is for young explorers interested in learning about birds. Your explorer will learn how to be curious and observant when it comes to bird watching. They will learn to keep their ears tuned and eyes open and how to record what they notice.
Since there is a limited number of participants, we are centering this event around a contest. If you have a child expressing interests in learning basic birding skills and a yearning to further these skills, this contest is for him or her. Without (or with a little) help, please have your child submit a composition of 200 words or less expressing their desire to learn birding skills and why they love birds. Pictures or drawings can be part of their composition. 10 children will be awarded a place in this class from the entries received.
Contest forms can be picked up and dropped off at Assisi Heights or you can contact Loretta Mogan for instructions and forms to enter this contest. E-mail: email@example.com.
This program is facilitated by Loretta Mogan, a bird watcher and leader for many years. This event is co-sponsored by the Leadership Team of Compassionate Rochester MN.
