About the Instructor: 

Mak Soden is an avid birder from the Simcoe County/ Georgian Bay region. He has been birding every day for the last 8 years both at home in Simcoe and on trips around the world. Most recently, Mak has become more involved with the Wye Marsh coordinating summer camp and sharing his passion of birds with the next generation of birders. You can find Mak in his natural habitat on the boardwalk, wearing a pair of binoculars around his neck as he watches the blackbirds and sparrows forage through the cattails.
