I am working with two interns  from the Smithsonian Bird Conservation program to promote Rock Creek Nature Center’s International Bird Day Festival happening on Sat. May 11th.  We want the event to attract diverse audiences from the D.C. metro area and we want to get new people involved in bird conservation. Last week I attended a social media workshop on ways to engage the public in conservation related issues. This workshop gave me ideas on how to market my programs to the general public. I am also contacting educators, community leaders, and ethnic media outlets regarding this Latino outreach initiative. We would like to have Latin American performance groups at the event to emphasize that IMBD is an international conservation effort. If you are based in the DC area, I hope you will join our IMBD event!

PS- I am getting use to my morning commutes.  I have to admit that I enjoy living in this area and riding the metro to work!
