|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Wednesday and Friday, happening 8 times

Birding has become an even more popular hobby since more people are home and enjoying nature. Why not take it to the next level? Join Chris Earley, Arboretum Interpretive Biologist and author of five bird field guides, for a series of eight virtual noon-hour lectures on eight different bird groups. ID techniques, field marks, shapes, behaviour clues and more will all be covered. Each course will finish with a 10- to 15-minute discussion period so you can ask all your bird-related questions. You can sign up for individual courses for $8 (plus tax) each or take all eight at the discounted cost of $56 (plus tax) – that’s eight courses for the price of seven!

Courses will be held on Wednesdays and Fridays from noon to 1 p.m. from November 23 to December 16.

Bird groups covered include: Hawks, Ducks, Sparrows, Sandpipers, Gulls, Spring Warblers, Fall Warblers and Spring Migrants.

This fund-raising initiative will help support other Arboretum educational programs.

Fee: $8 + H.S.T. per session or register for all eight at once and pay for only seven (i.e., $56 for all eight instead of $64 – you must sign up for all of them at once in a single transaction; not at different times). This event will take place on Zoom.
