Ducks of the Klamath Basin
thursday, january 25th at 5pm
Meet the ducks who make the Klamath Basin home on Thursday, January 25th at 5pm at the downtown Klamath County Library.
This event is part of a series of nature-themed films, workshops and other activities for all ages brought to you by Teresa “Bird” Wicks from the Great Outdoor Alliance each month through July 2018.
Wicks will introduce participants to the ducks who live throughout the Klamath Basin, discuss methods to identify ducks that you see while you’re out and about, show how to tell individuals in a species apart (and highlight ways that ID’ing ducks can be a bit tricky). Then we’ll test what you’ve learned with a bit of “Duck Jeopardy!”
Wicks spent her childhood roaming the forests of southern Oregon while her father climbed trees to collect cones. An early obsession with birds led to hours of hiking, journaling, and artistic expression. As a scientist, educator, and artist, Wicks derives great joy from introducing kids, adults, and families to birds, science, and the many ways nature is intertwined in our daily lives.
