Join us and learn more about birdwatching in Connecticut. Find a local place to observe birds by exploring Connecticut’s recreational trails, city parks, state parks, wildlife refuges, and other sanctuaries. We’ll see what surprising birds have been found in our area recently, and find groups to join as they’re finding birds in your local area. Also, we’ll learn how we can help protect these havens for both people and birds.
Ken's interest in birds started when he was 10 years old, while watching the birds at his grandmother's feeders in Vermont, and he has been obsessed ever since. After earning a degree in 1998 in Environmental Biology and Interpretation from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, he started his career in conservation education at Westmoor Park in West Hartford, CT and quickly moved onto Connecticut Audubon Society. There, he taught at all 5 of their Audubon Centers and became their Director of Education. He led many EcoTravel trips and organized their World Series of Birding team for 8 years. In 2008, Ken moved onto National Audubon, where he's the Community Conservation Manager based at the Audubon Center at Bent of the River in Southbury.
