Brush Up Those Birding Skills

Ray Scory is offering his popular Birding classes this fall. The classes are structured with the beginner in mind, but many of our members have taken the classes 2 or 3 times to sharpen their skills and to review the basics. There are  3 classroom sessions followed by a field trip 2 days later. For more information, download the flyer for dates and places. The cost for the entire course is only $25.00 to cover the club's expenses. Sign up contact information has changed, so please download a current copy of the sign up sheet with our logo on it for the new information. Only the contact information has changed and you can contact Joan Tague - listed on the form - with questions. If you have paid and have reserved your spot in the class we look forward to seeing you at the first session.
