Bird Ecology and Identification
Are you interested in learning more about the birds that live around us?
Join instructor Kori York at this two-part workshop series to learn about birds of the Pacific Northwest. These two classes will teach you how to begin your birding journey!
Both classes will include two hours of classroom learning and one hour of bird watching on our trails. You will leave with resources and birding software to use, knowledge on how to create a bird watching journal and information on when and where to find birds.

Bring your favorite Bird ID Book and binoculars! We will have some available to use. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and be prepared to walk about 1 mile on earthen trails.
The fine print: These courses are intended for ages 12 and older. Younger children are welcome but be advised that the course material may not be suited for their needs. Plan on attending both classes. Pre-registration is required. Please consider making a donation to help pay for printing materials and snacks at the workshop.

How can I protect myself from the Coronavirus?

Wash your hands

Everyday practices to prevent colds, influenza and other respiratory illnesses can also protect people against coronaviruses, including COVID-19. Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. When soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
