Desert Rivers Audubon, which hosts monthly nature programs for families in Gilbert and Chandler, will give outdoors enthusiasts a primer on using smart phones to connect with nature.

“Tech Night: Smartphones & Other Technology Helping Hikers & Wildlife in AZ” will take place 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 9, at Gilbert Community Center, 130 N. Oak St.

The evening’s presenter, Eileen Kane, says she’ll demonstrate Desert Rivers’ own app, “101+ Birding Sites-Phoenix,” as well as eBird, the citizen science database from Cornell Lab of Ornithology used by tens of thousands of wildlife enthusiasts.

“I’ll also talk about apps used to identify native plants and Arizona Game and Fish Department’s mobile technology,” says Kane. “We have free versions of our own app available as well.”

Early arrivals will have time to browse the society’s mobile book shop and learn about volunteer opportunities with Desert Rivers Audubon, which runs programs at Gilbert Riparian Preserve, Gilbert’s Zanjero Park and Chandler’s Veterans Oasis Park.

The event is free, and light refreshments will be served. For information, go to DesertRiversAudubon.org.
