My interest in birds began when I was very young. By the time I was five years old I was fascinated with birds and watched them at feeders in my parents’ yard in Massachusetts.
At the age of 13 I joined the Tucson chapter of the National Audubon Society. When I lived in Utah I participated in the Utah County Birders Club (there was not an Audubon chapter in Provo). I have been associated with the Prescott chapter of the National Audubon Society for the past eleven years and have served on the board of directors and as the publicity chair.
I have led bird walks, been in charge of the Spring Migratory Bird Count, and I have participated in the Christmas Bird Count in Tucson, Provo, and Prescott for a time period spanning 30 years. I consider myself to be an excellent birder. Birding is more than a hobby for me–it is a passion.
Dena Greenwood began her birding adventures 25 years ago as an Arizona State Park’s ranger leading bird walks at the local parks and developing bird lists for numerous State Parks. She received her graduate degree in environmental biology with an emphasis in ornithology, botany and geology. She conducted bird research for Colorado Plateau Research Station, National Park Service, and the U.S. Forest Service on the Verde and Colorado, and San Juan River corridors.
She is a Northern Arizona Audubon Board member developing field trips below the Rim and a founding committee member of the Verde Valley Bird and Nature Festival organizing field trips for the Festival. She currently teaches Birds of the Region courses through Yavapai College and leads Wednesday bird walks for Jay’s Bird Barn.
