Join naturalist, Mary Jo Graham of Oakmoss Education, for an indoor presentation followed by a casual walk through Forest Lawn to discover some of the cemetery’s feathered residents. Birds have fascinated humans from our earliest times, not only for their ability to fly, but for the beautiful and interesting sounds they make. In this combination lecture and walk, we’ll discuss the various avian sounds and vocalizations paying special attention to their meaning and purpose. We’ll delve into cross-species “language” and spend a bit of time reveling in the beauty these amazing beings bring to our existence, both visually and audibly, as we stroll the grounds of the cemetery. Binoculars and field guides are encouraged!
