Beginning Bird Watching Class – Spring and Fall of each year
New to birding in Colorado? Wonder where to begin? Join Colorado’s foremost–and most entertaining couple as they introduce the art and science of birdwatching as no one else can. Learn bird identification, choosing and using binoculars and field guides, and much more. Instruction takes place, not in a classroom but rather on field trips to the best birding spots in the Denver metro area. Learn to develop a practiced eye and ear. Meet new friends and change the way you spend time outdoors. Make up any field trips that you miss during future class sessions. Be forewarned: this class has hooked hundreds on the lifelong adventure of birdwatching!
If you love the outdoors, love to teach, and want to learn about what’s living in your backyard, join our education community and become an Audubon Naturalist!
Our unique training program offers 90 hours of classroom and field training. We bring in field experts to teach classes on ecosystems, ecology, geology, plants, insects, reptiles, amphibians, bird & raptor identification, mammals and interpretive guide techniques. People of all experience levels are encouraged to become naturalists for our public and/or school environmental education programs.
When: Training offered annually beginning each September.
