Join us March 8-10 for our Winter Birding Workshop!

Increase your birding skills through field trips and presentations! This year's Winter Birding Workshop, in partnership with San Juan Islands Audubon, will take place the weekend of March 8-10, 2024.

This workshop is ideal for those wishing to continue their education as a naturalist or for those who simply love birds!

In this course, participants will have great opportunities to learn about identifying birds in their winter plumage, groups and species of birds, their needs, behaviors, and habitats, as well as migration and population patterns via hands on field experience and classroom learning.
