Birders’ Night

Birders’ Night is ECAS’s monthly education and social meeting, held on the third Thursday of the month at The Environmental Center of Bend at 7 p.m.; presentations may also be viewed live virtually via Zoom. News about ECAS activities and bird happenings in Central Oregon are discussed. Each month, a guest speaker is invited to speak about an avian-related subject. Topics include birding, wildlife science, conservation, and public policy related to wildlife. Birders’ Night is open to the public; ECAS membership is not required to attend.
