Let’s welcome the Snowbirds!  Winter is an excellent time to look for birds. The leaves are gone from the trees and they are more visible, plus there are several bird species that are only here in the cold weather months because they migrate from farther north or higher upslope to find food. Join natural historian Stephen Lyn Bales via Zoom for an overview of species like dark-eyed junco, hermit thrush, yellow-bellied sapsucker, purple finch, winter wren and many more.

bears crossing traffic on highway

Join us via Zoom on Thursday, January 28, when Jeff Hunter of the National Parks Conservation Association will discuss efforts to help wildlife have safe passage options in the traffic corridors in the Smoky Mountains . As our world warms, wildlife populations need to expand northward. Highways are formidable barriers to this movement. Hunter facilitates the work of nearly 20 federal, state, tribal, and non-governmental organizations collaborating to make a 28-mile stretch of I-40 near the Smokies permeable for wildlife and safer for people.

Male Cardinal

Thursday, February 11, 7 p.m. EST on ZOOM – REGISTRATION REQUIRED

Be my Valentine Bird! Spring will be here soon and our local birds feel it. Courtship season is just beginning.  Male birds are looking for their valentines and each he-bird has to claim territory and attract the attention of a female by their song quality, attentive behavior and bright plumage. Unmated female cardinals look for the brightest red male that’s available. Why? Find out via Zoom in this free program with natural historian Stephen Lyn Bales. This event is sponsored by the UT Arboretum Society and the UT Forest Resources AgResearch and Education Center.
