The program, designed for birding beginners or as a refresher course for intermediate birders, consists of two virtual classroom sessions and a field outing. Please be available for all three dates when you register.
Learn how to select an app, field guide and binoculars, bird identification and great regional birding locations for you to head out to on your own.
Space is limited. The Beginner Birding program is free, but a $30 per person donation to DLC is suggested due to the extensive classroom content being provided and so that we may continue to offer quality programs such as this.
