Introduction To Birding

Beginning to Advanced Students Welcome!

If you’ve always loved birds but need help getting started,  join our beginning bird class with naturalist Jerry Coe! In our class you will receive instruction on how to effectively use binoculars and bird identification guides to identify common birds in the field.
