The first event will be a Saturday morning bird walk that will start at 8:00 a.m. at the scenic Panorama Overlook on Route 9 west of Berkeley Springs and move on to favorite riparian sites near the junction of the Cacapon and Potomac rivers. The walk will be led by local birding experts Jon Boone and Janet Ardam. At 10:00 a.m., participants will gather at the Ice House for coffee and pastries and an on-site demonstration of backyard birding strategies and gear. Saturday's "Beginning Birding" workshop will be held at 2:00 p.m. at the Cacapon State Park Nature Center. It will be intended for beginners of all ages. Marci Heacker will show what features all birds share, and Park Naturalist Renee Fincham will lead a short trail walk to demonstrate how birds are viewed, identified and enjoyed.

At 8:00 p.m., Steve Huy will present "Birding With A Purpose," which will include an overview of Huy's early interest in bird migrations and raptors and a discussion of his current involvement with Project SNOWstorm, which tracks the movements of Snowy Owls.
