Engaging educational programs to promote interest in the study of birds
DUE TO THE COVID19 PANDEMIC, DFO WILL CONDUCT MONTHLY PROGRAMS AS ZOOM WEBINARS THROUGH APRIL 2021. When registration opens, the title of the program will be a hyperlink to the registration page. DFO will return to offering in person programs eight months a year (January through April, August through November) when it is safe to do so. As always, DFO programs are free and open to the public. They are traditionally held on the fourth Monday of the month at 7 PM.
An asterisk before the date indicates the annual DFO meeting. Come and cast your vote for our new Board of Directors and Officers.
A summary of the DFO monthly program is published in the following month's newsletter. When possible, monthly programs are video-recorded. Click on the Video Archive button below to view.
Better Birding Workshops are a new initiative of DFO to help people improve their birding skills. Workshops will focus on species identification, birdsong, the use of online birding tools, seasonal migration and other field topics. The DFO Knowledge and Learning Committee welcomes your ideas for future workshops.
Citizen science is research and data gathering by community members. DFO promotes this public participation in scientific observation and study to help improve understanding of the birds we love to see and watch.

Even if you don't officially volunteer for a project, the materials here can help you become a better birder.
