Science Saturday is back in full flight this weekend, as Susan Puder and Greg Prelich of the Southern Ocean Birding Group talk “12 Months of Birds” from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the main building of the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences in Loveladies.

Puder, founder and president of the Southern Ocean Birding Group, and Prelich, a naturalist with Ocean City Parks and Recreation and a member of the the birding group, “will present a fun and informative interactive lecture where they will discuss what birds can be found in southern New Jersey every month of the year,” LBIF marketing and programs associate Jillian Schratz explained.

“This program is for both new and experienced birders, and is designed to help you decide when and where to go to find hundreds of bird species, whether you bird watch year ’round or only a few times a year.”

Science Saturday, now in its 12th season, invites experts to speak about pressing scientific, ecological and sustainability issues that directly affect the shore environment and community.

A schedule of all upcoming lectures is available online at lbifoundation.org. Presentations will be held every Saturday through April 28, except for March 31.

No registration is required. Admission is free for Foundation members; a $5 donation is requested from all other attendees.

Breakfast treats and coffee are provided by Little Bite of Italy in Surf City.
