Beginning Bird-Watching with Kevin Pullen

Wednesday, June 20, 8:00-11:00 a.m. 
  at  Living in the Garden

Did you know there are over 200 species of birds in our area?

Would you like to be able to identify them?
Join us for tips on distinguishing and recognizing birds.
We'll also take a peek at the avian residents of Living in the Garden.

Kevin Pullen was born and raised in northeast Oregon where he spent much of his time on his grandparent’s ranch. There he was able to experience the outdoors and learn an appreciation for hard work and the natural world. As a child, his grandmother would take him on walks down the country road, stopping to peer into wild rose bushes at the young blackbirds in their nests. He continued his interest in nature as a field biologist, presenter and university zoology instructor.

"There is beauty and wonder all around us; capturing it on film is a gratifying challenge. I especially enjoy photographing wildlife. Animals lead rich lives filled with drama and humor. The more time I spend with them, the more their worlds open up to me"  ~Kevin Pullen
