Bird Language for Beginners

Have you ever wondered why birds sing? Or noticed that a landscape has gone completely silent when it should be bustling with bird activity? Song birds are the alarm system of the forests and their vocalizations have meanings for birds and other animals. 

Join an educator from the Water Resources Education Center to learn how to decipher their language and understand the story they are broadcasting from the treetops. Class will be both indoors and outdoors, rain or shine. Expect to go slowly as we investigate riparian habitat off-trail. This class is suitable for ages 12 and older. Terrain will be uneven and muddy; please leave pets at home. Space is limited, so be sure to register soon at https://www.cityofvancouver.us/publicworks/webform/bird-language-beginners.

Saturday, March 28
9 a.m. to noon

Ages:  12 and older
