Want to get started bird watching? NJBG invites you to learn more about 'The Joys of Birding – Birding for Beginners' at the New Jersey State Botanical Garden (NJBG) on Sunday, April 30, 2017, at 1:00 pm.

Don Torino of the Bergen County Audubon Society will teach you how to identify birds, use field guides and find the best optics for birding. After the class, Don will lead a walk around the Gardens to try out your newly learned skills (weather permitting).

This program is free and will begin indoors at the Carriage House Visitor Center. For the walk, wear sturdy shoes and dress for the weather. For more information, contact Don Torino at 201-230-4983 or
