EPT Winter Naturalist Series Kicks off with
“Mountain Birdwatch” Jan. 21
The public is invited to join songbird expert Dr. Judith Scarl of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies and the Equinox Preservation Trust (EPT) for her presentation of ”Mountain Birdwatch.” Dr. Scarl will discuss the findings of a citizen science research project on high-elevation songbird populations, notably the Bicknell’s Thrush.
The research involves yearly surveys of songbird populations in the region, including Mt Equinox. The free program will be held in the Manchester Room at the Equinox Hotel on Saturday, Jan. 21, at 7 p.m.
Dr. Scarl’s presentation marks the kick-off of EPT’s new winter lecture series and workshops focusing on the natural history of the Taconics and the Equinox Highlands in which the Equinox Preserve is located. Dr. Scarl’s program is sponsored by The Vermont Bird Place and Sky Watch in Manchester Depot, and the Equinox Hotel.
