In addition to learning the basics of bird watching, we'll visit a California Gull colony and observe chick banding, explore citizen science activities, and check out the abundant waterbird species on the refuge. 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.
