Sunday, December 13th at 2:00pm

the public is invited to

“Duck’s Eye View of the Bashakill” a presentation by

Sullivan County Audubon member Lance Verderame.

His short, exciting program, offers a look at the variety of waterfowl inhabiting and migrating through the Bashakill Wildlife Management Area. Located near Wurtsboro, it is the largest freshwater marsh in southern New York State. Lance will explore why this is one of the premier birding locations in the state and the best in Sullivan County.

Participants will see aerial views of the Bashakill Wetland and neighboring Shawangunk Ridge and learn how the time of day and certain weather events affect the number and type of birds seen as well as the numerous rarities found in this birding hotspot. The program is suitable for a general audience and children age 8 and up.

John Haas, author of “A Birding Guide To: Sullivan County New York” will join Lance for a question and answer session.

John’s book will be on sale at the event and all proceeds will go directly to the Basha Kill Area Association.

The program coincides with the Holiday Duck Print Exhibit & Sale now on display in Morgan Outdoors’ Catskill Park room through January 4, 2016. Ride 2 Survive-Sullivan County is offering the duck prints for sale, thanks to a generous donation by longtime collectors. Professionally framed and unframed prints are available at attractive prices.
