Friends of Fort Flagler is excited to offer an opportunity to hear from Gary Eduardo Perless, an Audubon volunteer naturalist.
Join us to learn how a holiday tradition changed from killing to counting our feathered friends. Gary Eduardo Perless will be sharing his experiences with us about the Christmas Bird Count on Marrowstown Island and offer tips on identifying the types of birds that call Fort Flagler home.
The program will be offered online and free to the public. To register, please send your name, email and the city of residence to FortFlaglerFriends@gmail.com. Upon emailing us, we will send you the links and instructions.
Gary Eduardo Perless is a volunteer naturalist with the Audubon Society, leading walks throughout Jefferson County. Gary has a degree in Geography, has worked as a science teacher, outdoor educator, and conservation promoter for a Peruvian cloud forest reserve near Machu Picchu. Gary has dedicated his life to connecting people with nature and educating the public on critical environmental issues.
This program is part of an effort by Friends of Fort Flagler to expand our focus to include the natural history of the park. We will be working with park staff to enhance the natural environment by working on the trails, removing invasive species, and restoring the natural habitat. We are also looking forward to providing a variety of educational opportunities for our park visitors to include interpretive programs, and exhibits.
