« back to classes page
Would you like to learn how to identify some of the ducks and other water birds that winter along the Columbia River?  North Central Washington Audubon Society’s Jenny Graevell and Wenatchee Naturalist Susan Ballinger have co-designed this course to increase your observation skills in a collaborative setting.  This hands-on course will use field guides, bird study skins, presentations, apps, and optics. Loaner binoculars will be available, courtesy of the Audubon society.  A Waterfowl ID booklet is included for each student.   The Saturday 1/2-day field trip will be along the Columbia River where participants will practice birding skills under supportive guidance of the instructors.  This combined classroom and field course can launch you on your way to becoming a better bird watcher alongside a group of other enthusiasts. The course is designed for people with some birding experience, but beginners are also welcome.  Tuition scholarships available at
