About Your Guide
Ken Elkins works at the Bent of the River Preserve and will lead us to the best birding locations and provide lessons and hints for bird identification and vocalizations along the way.  You are in for an entertaining and educational morning bird walk at the peak of spring migration.

Ken has a degree in Environmental biology from SUNY and has worked in environmental  education for over 10 years before joining the staff at Bent of the River in 2008.  Ken recently developed the multisensory and low cost therapeutic "Bird Tales" program to bring the natural outdoor world of birds to those living with dementia and helps them to share their experiences with others.  Ken began bird watching when he was 10 years old and is an expert, not only at birding, but all other wildlife, as an educator, conservationist, ecologist, naturalist and more.  He is an Education Program Manager  with the National Audubon Society with previous positions as President of Connecticut Ornithological Association, Director of Education at Connecticut Audobon Society and as a Teacher/Naturalist at Westmoor Park.
