Birding Basics - Adult education class

Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, Sept 28 - Oct 7, 1 to 2:30pm
Do you find yourself listening to an odd chirp while walking or gardening? Are you fascinated by the random rustlings in the bushes? Do you notice and enjoy the birds in your world, but wish you knew more about these clever and busy neighbors?

This is just the class for you! Participants will learn how birds behave so it will be easier to find, watch, and identify the birds you are seeing.

ASLC instructors Caren Willoughby, Laura Doyle, and Mark Elliot will teach identification, adaptions, and habitat of the birds of the Oregon Coast during this two-week class. Participants will have access to bird guides and binoculars and will learn how to use them. The final day of the class will be a field trip to practice using binoculars and field guides and identify birds in the area.

Cost of the class is $40 plus $10 for materials. Register here! (Scroll down and click "Birding Basics")

Location: Oregon Coast Community College North Center, 3788 SE High School Drive, Lincoln City, OR.
