Backyard Naturalist Subscription

9-10am CST, Fridays, Online via Zoom
Registration is required for this program. 

(For everyone) Come join us for weekly Friday virtual lectures on the amazing life that exists in our backyards. Each week will focus on a different Backyard Naturalist topic, led by UEC staff as well as different guest lecturers. We will cover it ALL, one week at a time! This series looks at the common, uncommon and hidden creatures that comprise the ecological communities in our backyards and our houses and the extraordinary stories they tell. 

What we're offering: Access to all Friday lectures (seasonally) for Spring and/or Summer, including guest lectures and workshops – once you purchase you are automatically registered for the season! Want to extend your support and your benefits even further? Purchase both seasons together and you will automatically be registered for all of the virtual events during the Virtual Brew City Birding Festival (what we used to call the Frequent Flyer Pass). Our options include the Spring Subscription (access until May) the Summer Subscription (access June-August) or a bundle of both seasons to receive additional bonus programming from the Brew City Birding Festival.

Upon registration, you will be sent an email containing the link to the Zoom session. Look for this email 1 hour prior to event start time. (If you do not see this email, it might be based on your personal email filter settings - be sure to check your spam folder)
