We all need more birds and nature in our lives! That’s why a central part of the mission of the American Birding Expo is to introduce more people to birding and nature. To help welcome “newbies” to our birding flock, the 2017 Expo will feature two booths, full of free information and advice, dedicated to beginners. The “Get Started in Bird Watching” and “Get Started in Bird Feeding” booths will serve as a friendly welcome mat to potential enthusiasts who want to explore birds in their own backyards—or beyond. Signage and helpful Expo volunteers will be on hand to direct beginners to these two booths, where they will be able to start their new hobby with ease!
