Please join us for Spring Birding in Central Park with evolutionary biologist Spencer Galen on Saturday, May 20 at 7 AM. It's spring migration season and Galen will take us on a guided bird walk through Central Park where we will get to see and hear the harmonious mating calls of our extant dinosaur friends.
This event is FREE! However, in order to make the bird walk enjoyable for everyone, we are limiting the size of the group. If you are interested in attending, please send an email to [masked] to make a reservation. Meetup and Facebook 'attendance' will NOT be considered as a reservation.
Once your reservation is confirmed, please meet bright and early at 7 AM at the intersection of 77th street and Central Park West (on the Central Park side) across the street from the American Museum of Natural History. Please call (917)[masked] if you have trouble finding us. This is a BYOB (Bring Your Own Binoculars) event!
Spencer Galenis a Ph.D. candidate in the Richard Gilder Graduate School at the American Museum of Natural History. He received his B.S. from the University of Delaware and an M.S. from the University of New Mexico where he studied the evolution of birds in the Peruvian Andes. Galen has spent time studying birds throughout North and South America, including Costa Rica, Ecuador, Peru, and most recently Cuba. He is originally from New Jersey where he found a passion for studying birds as a child while observing the amazing spring migration that takes place across the eastern United States every year.
