The Central Kentucky Wildlife Refuge will host a Beginning Birdwatchers event on Saturday, March 30th. This event is for anyone who would like to learn the basic skills needed to participate in one of the most popular pastimes in America. The event will start at 10 am in the parking lot. We will start with an orientation in the bird blind. After the orientation we will go for a short walk through varied habitat looking for migrating songbirds as well as our resident birds. This event is suitable for children. Participants should provide their own binoculars and dress for the weather.
The Central Kentucky Wildlife Refuge will be hosting our annual Spring Wildflower Walks on April 6th and 20th. Both walks will begin at 10 am and participants should meet near the Martha B. Clay Wildflower Trail on Carpenter Creek Rd. The first walk will be lead by Dr. Anne Lubbers, Professor of Biology at Centre College. The second walk will be lead by Rob Pendygraft, Co-director of Education for CKWR. The trail is level and about a quarter of a mile long, making it suitable for people of all ages. Participants are reminded to wear comfortable shoes and to dress for the weather.
