Field Trips to bird-watching sites around Denver including Chatfield, Barr Lake, and Castlewood Canyon State Parks, Wheat Ridge Greenbelt, Genesee Mountain Park and an evening in the Zoology Department at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

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. Graduates of the class may drop in on subsequent class field trips at $20 a field trip. Be forewarned: this class has hooked hundreds on the lifelong adventure of birdwatching!

Leaders: Urling & Hugh Kingery
