Birding Basics and Tools of Being a Birder
Presented by Ken Wiersema and Bob Iddins
October 5, 2019 from 10 a.m. – noon
Meet at the Dungeness River Audubon Center
Our first program of the 2019 – 2020 Backyard Birder series will be led by two birding veterans, who will offer their views on the basic skills of birding, some ID tips, discussion of birding optics, the pros and cons of field guides, information on the e-bird system, mobile birding apps — and much more. So join us for the launch of our new program year. For more information contact Ken Wiersema at (360) 460-5515.
The Backyard Birding series of classes, hosted by members of the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, is intended for residents of this area who are interested in knowing more about birds seen locally each season of the year and learning how to develop good habitats for wild birds.
“Backyard Birding” can be taken either as individual classes or as a series. The cost of each session is $5 and is free for anyone under 18. After the completion of five sessions, participants will be offered free membership in OPAS for one year. Instructors are volunteers, and class fees support the educational programs of OPAS and the Dungeness River Audubon Center.
