Webinar: Black Birders Week – Birding Mentors

  • This event has passed.

May 30 at 3:00 pm 4:00 pm

The third annual Black Birders Week (May 29–June 4) will feature a 3-part webinar series exploring the social aspects of birdwatching. Birding can be an individual activity but it’s much more enjoyable with a community of birders. In the age of COVID, and in the age of social media, how are birders connecting? Join the organizers of Black Birders Week to explore the importance of social connections in claiming your birding identity.

In part 1 of the series, panelists will discuss their experiences throughout their birding journeys and the importance of birding community relationships. These experienced birders know that birding can be exclusionary if you don’t find the right community! Panelists will share how experienced birders can become effective birding mentors, and welcoming to new birders.

Black Birders Week is organized by BlackAFinSTEM, which creates and maintains the schedules, events, and hashtags. BlackAFinSTEM is a group of young professionals in the STEM fields. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is partnering with Black Birders Week to help these important conversations reach a larger audience.
