An Overview of Seven Islands State Birding Park

August 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Seven Islands State Birding Park is the only park in Tennessee that primarily focuses on managing habitat for birds. In addition to creating a premier birding destination, the park provides educational programming, and participates in several bird monitoring and research projects. Escape the summer heat and join us via ZOOM to learn more about the park, see some of the behind-the-scenes projects, and learn how you can get involved. This program is sponsored by UT Arboretum, UT Arboretum Society, and Tennessee Citizens for Wilderness Planning.

Our presenter is Clare Dattilo, the seasonal Interpreter at Seven Islands State Birding Park, where she leads educational programs, participates in bird research, and organizes community science volunteers. She has over twenty years of experience in natural history interpretation and environmental education, and is passionate about sharing her love of the natural world with visitors at the park.

This program is free but you must register at https://utarboretumsociety.org/rsvpmaker/an-overview-of-seven-islands-state-birding-park/ to receive your Zoom link. It will be recorded and sent to those who register. Closed captions will be available. Please contact UT Arboretum Education Coordinator, Michelle Campanis, at mcampani@utk.edu for any questions or registration issues.
