It looks so easy in the field guides but ducks on water and in flight can be confusing. The program begins at 9 a.m., and includes some classroom time in the Center followed by a trip out in the wetland to try out your new identification skills, weather permitting. Program will end at noon and is suitable for ages 12 years to 99. There is no fee but reservations are required. For more information or to make your reservation, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Melynda Hickman at 405-990-4977.
