FORT MYERS, Fla. ( September 4 , 2014)
The Academy of Lifelong Learning at Shell Point welcomes Kristie Anders, education director for the Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation, as she returns to share “The ABCs of Birds.” Anders’ presentation is scheduled on Thursday, Sept. 18 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in the Grand Cypress Room of The Woodlands at Shell Point Retirement Community.
Anders will share a basic introduction to birds, highlighting around 20 of the most common and easily recognizable birds seen throughout Southwest Florida. All are welcome to enjoy Anders’ lighthearted look at our feathered friends – a birding background will not be needed! This course is free, but space is limited and registration is required by calling (239) 489-8472.
