Mary Kay Salwey contacted me about finding an avid birder to volunteer 
at a youth event coming up Friday, May 14, in Beaver Dam. This would be 
a great opportunity to get 4th and 5th graders excited about birds.

/--Making Time for Birds/

I'm seeking an avid birder who's willing to work at the Bird 
Identification Teaching Station at the Wisconsin Outdoor Education Youth 
Expo located on the Dodge County Fairgrounds (east of Beaver Dam on Hwy 
33) on Friday, May 14.

Would anyone be willing to help out during the busy times (about 9 a.m. 
to 2 p.m.)
on that Friday?

Bill Volkert, his naturalist assistant Liz Herzmann, and our Wildlife 
Technician from Ladysmith, Chris Cold, will be teaching that station, 
but we'd really
like another experienced birder to help out because Friday is the 
busiest of the two days.

There are 2,235 kids registered on Friday (and 1,010 registered on 

I would give a volunteer all the details, and can reimburse the person 
for mileage, too.
Lunch, beverages and snacks are provided free to all workers.

I know this is a very busy time of year for birders, but this is a super 
event for 4th & 5th graders. It's now in its 5th year. If anyone would 
like to view a short video of the event, you can visit www.wisexpo.com 
and click on "Watch Expo 2". You'll see Chris Cold handling one of his 
raptors toward the end of the video.

Please let me know if anyone can help us out this year.

A picture may be worth a thousand words,
But an outdoor experience is worth a thousand pictures!
Make a difference!
