LWC’s Youth Environmental Education Committee will conduct a series of 3 classes (March 8, 22, and April 5) to introduce participants to the intriguing pastime of birding. These 2-hour sessions (9:30-11:30am) will help beginners develop the knowledge and skills necessary to become more comfortable in participating in LWC’s monthly bird walks and surveys. Session 1 will be primarily indoors and focus attention on identification skills, binocular choice and use, as well as other accessories available to improve one’s birding experience. Sessions 2 and 3 will be held outdoors at locations where we can practice identifications and enjoy some wonderful and productive birding locations. Classes will be family-oriented towards ages from 8 to 80+.  Space will be limited, and some binoculars will be available for use during classes.

Registration is required by March 5. For more info, please contact Phil Daley,
