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 are excited to be able to offer Bill Stott’s Ornithology course this fall. This is a college-level introduction to the study of birds in the context of their environment. Particular attention will be paid to their biology, field identification, ecological relationships, life histories, geographical and seasonal distribution, and migration.
