Cynthia Donald, birding enthusiast and member of Desert Rivers, Maricopa, Sonoran, Tucson and National Audubon societies, leads this fun, interactive, in-depth program specially designed for beginning bird watchers. This class includes five classroom sessions at the Garden and four weekend field trips. Classroom format will consist of short PowerPoint presentations, discussions, group activities and question and answer sessions. Field trips will be on the Saturday following the first four classes and will vary in length and location. The purpose of the field trips is to introduce students to a variety of resident and migrant bird species, explore a diversity of birding habitats, teach field identification techniques and highlight some of the Valley's local birding destinations. You will leave this class with a deeper knowledge of birding and the resources to continue developing your knowledge and skills. Field trips will be held on February 23, March 2, 9 and 16.
