Program Information

Join the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary and Josh Haas from Hawks on the Wing for the 12th annual Field Ornithology Course! This engaging, hands-on learning experience will help you learn more about the fascinating world of birds and improve your bird watching and identification skills.  Each two-part lecture will include talks from a state or local scientist/expert followed by an identification lesson led by Josh. Josh’s dynamic teaching style will encourage students to take information shared in the classroom outside in the field! Field trips visit local birding hot spots and are led by experienced birders. All skill levels are welcome!
