The Bird Watching Workshop was organized on October 15th and 25th, by Mr. Fouad Itani, the instructor of the event. Sixteen students signed up for the 2 day workshop and attended the October 15 campus walk-around, witnessing many interesting bird species otherwised missed in everyday campus visits. After the workshop, students were sent the photographs taken by Mr. Fouad of the birds they've seen during the bird watching workshop.
This event was unfortunately cancelled midway due to the circumstances of the country and the second day of the workshop did not happen. However, the AUBotanic and Birds of Lebanon are determined to continue the project once the dust settles.
This will be a first step to a bigger project of student to village outreach and spreading bird watching as a new economic alternative to hunting.
