Join us June 22-25, 2010 at the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge in Brigham City, Utah for the Connecting People with Nature bird education course is at Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge in Brigham City, Utah from June 21-25, 2010.. We'll be moving from our usual course site in West Virginia and hope some of our partners out west will be able to take part. This course is a great way for educators to learn how to incorporate birds and bird conservation into their activities. It is not a bird i.d. course, and we'll focus on about one dozen species to teach the basics of bird watching.
