Gaylord Nelson Audubon Society is teaming up with Beaver Creek Reserve to offer an expanded and enhanced version of Bird School in 2017.
The class will offer beginning birders a whirlwind introduction to all things avian including bird identification, behavior, songs and calls, anatomy, migration, and conservation. Held at the Beaver Creek Reserve facilities, we’ll have a great line up of speakers and field trip leaders; and this year we’re including a morning session devoted to bird banding to offer students a chance to see living birds up close.
