May 18th, (2016) Program 7:30 PM

" Choosing and Caring for Optics for Birding"

Presenter: Aden Troyer of Lost Creek Shoe Shop

========================================================================= Aden Troyer's shop in Mifflintown, Pennsylvania is the place birders go to try out the huge inventory of new and used binoculars and scopes for their birding needs. As an avid birder, himself, Aden has plenty of stories to engage and entertain his audience while he educates them on how to match up your budget and needs with the correct pair of optics. He will be bringing some to display, and will demonstrate their use and maintenance.

Aden has been interested in birds his entire life. After working on the First Pennsylvania Breeding Bird Survey and meeting others with the same interest, he began selling optics at his Lost Creek Shoe Shop. As an Amishman, Aden has no electricity at his store, but he has the entire gamut of optics to match anyone's budget, all the way up to Zeiss and Swarovski spotting scopes. =====================================================================

This program is free and open to the public.

All meetings are held at the Kelly Township Supervisors' Bldg,
