The program is first come, first serve. It is necessary to attend the workshop in order.
What to Bring:
Binoculars. If you don’t have your own, the bird preserve loans them out for use.
Please arrive 15 minutes early so that we can start on time. The preserve is open before the class begins, so you can use that time to do some birding.
