Birding is an activity that encourages better health through walking and hiking, exposure to biology, ornithology, and other science careers, increased sense of community through participation with other like minded individuals and increase environmental stewardship through appreciation of birds and their habitats. Lake Cumberland would like to bring this increasing activity to our campers and youth and provide them with the opportunity to learn about birds and birding in hopes to encourage campers to explore and engage in birding in their own communities. This project will consist of lessons in ornithology and adaptations and give campers a chance to participate in identifying birds in Lake Cumberland's bird blind.
