Hobbies help us manage our free time, discipline our minds, build expertise and give us things to be passionate about.
Vladimir Nabokov, author of Lolita, said his was lepidoptery—the study of butterflies.
Today at 6 p.m. at the Morrison-Knudsen Nature Center auditorium, Jason Martin would like to tell you about his job, ornithology, the study of birds—something you may want to consider making your hobby.
Martin is from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and will discuss his work in monitoring the reproductive biology of air fowl, and his project, NestWatch.
The event is free and one way for you to become better informed about nature. And who knows? You might even become a hobbyist yourself.
