Amazing Birds Across the Globe

Through the use of a PowerPoint presentation, we will examine and view some of the most unique birds in the world as well as the area in which they live. Unusual, and often humorous, courtship rituals and displays of birds will also be included. Participants will be able to explore many fascinating birds of the world without leaving their seats!

J-BIRD SPARROW:
I live on 3.3 heavily wooded acres approximately 4.5 miles south of Prescott, WI, half-way down a dead-end road. I’ve seen 90 species of birds on my property or flying over it (Bald Eagles and Sandhill Cranes).

Although I took a Nature Study course at the U of MN in 1979, and identified a few birds in the field, I didn’t take an official “birding” class until September of 1980. I never dreamed that I would become a world birder! My goal at the time was simply to be able to identify birds that I saw while I was outdoors doing other things such as canoeing, hiking, backpacking, skiing, etc. However, as I took more birding classes and did a bit of traveling to see unique birds, I became addicted to birding. My passion for birding has enabled me to see more than half the world’s bird species, visit approximately 40 countries for birding, and travel to all 7 continents. Current goals include seeing a Horned Guan in southern Mexico, birding the entire northern area of Australia, visiting Tasmania for the Tasmanian Devil and the Duck-billed Platypus, birding in the Manaus area of Brazil, and more! I’m also enrolling in the WI Master Naturalist Program which begins on March 16.

Mike Lynch guides program attendees through a night filled with great stories and folklore about the constellations and the celestial show in the skies over Western Wisconsin. An indoor orientation is followed by quality time outside under the heavens where Mr. Lynch will use his large reflecting telescopes (including two giant 20 inch reflectors that are among the biggest mobile telescopes in this region) to allow guests close-up views of star clusters, nebulae, galaxies, and other wonders in the winter/spring skies. Guests will receive a great handout package with user-friendly star maps and constellation charges, websites, a telescope-buying guide and more. Bring a lawn chair and be sure to dress for the outside weather to stay comfy for stargazing. Even if it’s cloudy you’ll learn a lot, have a great time and get a Mike Lynch “Cloud Check” for a future Starwatch Class.

This is a free program. Donations gratefully accepted to support the high quality programs of the Great River Road Visitor and Learning Center at Freedom Park.

Learn about glass fusing in this intro class. Glass fusing is easier than stained glass as a beginner.  You do not have to be an expert at glass cutting which can be frustrating for first time crafters.  With fuse glass, you can overlap the sheet glass, plus you can work with other glass elements such as glass stringers, glass nuggets, glass frit (which is ground up glass).  The studio has many shapes and sizes of glass. We teach you how to cut glass with the provided hand tools.  We do also sell premium glass sheets, glass remnants, fun glass cut out shapes that can be incorporated into your work.

Mike Lynch guides program attendees through a night filled with great stories and folklore about the constellations and the celestial show in the skies over Western Wisconsin. An indoor orientation is followed by quality time outside under the heavens where Mr. Lynch will use his large reflecting telescopes (including two giant 20 inch reflectors that are among the biggest mobile telescopes in this region) to allow guests close-up views of star clusters, nebulae, galaxies, and other wonders in the winter/spring skies. Guests will receive a great handout package with user-friendly star maps and constellation charges, websites, a telescope-buying guide and more. Bring a lawn chair and be sure to dress for the outside weather to stay comfy for stargazing. Even if it’s cloudy you’ll learn a lot, have a great time and get a Mike Lynch “Cloud Check” for a future Starwatch Class.

This is a free program. Donations gratefully accepted to support the high quality programs of the Great River Road Visitor and Learning Center at Freedom Park.
