Aiken Monthly Meeting Oct. 2023 | Plants & Birds & Rocks & Things: A Birding Adventure in Southeast Arizona
October 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Southeast Arizona is a birding mecca and a must-visit area for birding and nature enthusiasts. From expansive deserts with towering saguaros to remote mountains with sycamore streams, the region is home to rare, unique, and coveted birds that can be found only in this tiny corner of the United States. Join Jessica on two adventures to the border to hear the struggles and successes of birding an unknown landscape and see what species rewarded her. You’ll hear how to prepare for such a trip, get the lowdown on where to find the best birds, and realize that Jessica doesn’t take relaxing vacations.
Jessica Miller is the Fountain Creek Nature Center supervisor and volunteer leader of the Birds and Brews Aiken Audubon field trip series. Before moving to Colorado four years ago, she was the Recreation Director and Head Naturalist for Fripp Island Resort in coastal South Carolina. She’s also been a biological intern for Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge in North Carolina. She grew up in Georgia where she earned her B.S. in Biology from Augusta University. When she’s not pretending to be a normal human, she’s planning a birding trip!
