Birding Hike – Catherine Hamilton (8:30 am) – May 5

Don’t miss this unique opportunity!


Join Catherine Hamilton, a professional artist, global birder and U.S Ambassador for Birding for ZEISS Sports Optics, on a morning hike! While working on birding tours, at wildlife refuges, research stations, museum collections, and her Los Angeles studio, Catherine has been following birds around the world.


While participating on this hike, you will get to borrow & share a state of the art pair of ZEISS Terra ED 42 binoculars! These binoculars have the “highest optical precision and the hydrophobic multicoating guarantee of brilliant images down to the very last detail.” – You will also receive a birding checklist and use of a beautiful bag that was donated to the Friends of Point Pelee in memory of Murray Millar.


Get to know your hike leader on Friday, May 3 at 7 pm (click here for details) as Catherine presents an around-the-world story of how an artist fell full-time into the world of professional birding. Illustrated with drawings, photos, and paintings, the lecture goes from NYC to LA, to Central and South America to Morocco and Nagaland, India, on a whirlwind of constant travel. Catherine set out to learn everything she could about bird species around the globe, but ended up finding deep connections to people and conservation efforts on a distinctly local level, wherever she visited.
