Featuring John C. Robinson
Thursday, June 2 — 7 p.m. via Zoom
African-American ornithologist John C. Robinson utilizes his own personal and transformational experiences to explain the multiple ways that inner city and minority youth and young adults can become motivated to discover and appreciate nature through bird-watching. This presentation will focus on the barriers (and opportunities) to reaching a wider, more diverse audience to let them know that “birding is for everyone.”
