How to Lead a Bird and Nature Walk

Dixie Sommers

Dixie Sommers

Back by popular demand! Do you love birds? wildflowers? frogs? fungi? or some other aspect of nature?  Do you ever think you might like to share that love with others in an organized way, but are not sure how to do it?  If so, this workshop will answer a lot of questions and give you good tips on how to be a successful leader.  We will spend some time in a classroom setting and follow that up with a walk to practice what you’ve learned.

Instructor:  Dixie Sommers.  Dixie Sommers has been an Audubon member since 1986 and became a serious birder after moving back to the Washington area from Ohio in 2006, adding to her long interest in nature photography and travel.  She is an avid e-bird user and enjoys using photography to help learn the birds, and sharing her photos. In addition to favorite places in Virginia, her recent birding travels include Alaska, Cuba, Ecuador, Ohio, South Florida, Antarctica, and Argentina.  Dixie lives in Alexandria, Virginia, and retired from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics after a long career of counting jobs and workers.  Now she counts birds!
