The Whale Museum is holding a “Winter Birding Workshop in the San Juans” in partnership with San Juan Islands Audubon. Taking place the weekend of February 7-9, 2020, the intent is to increase birding skills through field trips and presentations.

This workshop is ideal for those wishing to continue their education as a naturalist or for those who simply love birds.

In this course, participants will have great opportunities to learn about identifying birds in their winter plumage, groups and species of birds, their needs, behaviors, & habitats, as well as migration and population patterns via hands on field experience and classroom learning.

San Juan Islands Audubon President and birding expert Barbara Jensen will lead the course which includes three classroom sessions and two half-day field trips on San Juan Island.

Workshop is limited to 13 participants so reserve your spot soon. Tuition is $150 for Museum/SSAMN members/Orca Adopters or $175 for non-members and includes transportation costs to field sites and lunches on the 8th and 9th.

Registration is available at The Whale Museum (open daily from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.) or via the website. For more information or to register, contact The Whale Museum at (360) 378-4710 ext. 30 or via email at info@whalemuseum.org.
