Northern Arizona Audubon Society (NAAS) presents Birding 101, a backyard birding class and field trip. Start inside the Library’s 1st Floor Terracotta Room on Friday, March 31st at 1:00p and then meet Saturday morning, April 1 at 7:00a (or Sunday morning) under the Ramada near Moser Lane at Rezzonico Family Park for a bird walk near the river, and immediately after, a carpool trip to the Camp Verde Sewer Treatment Plant for another bird walk. Never been birding before? Ask at the front desk to check out one of the four Birdwatching Backpack Kits at the Library to try it out.
Here is your chance to learn to identify the birds in your own backyard from one of the best, Dr. Richard Armstrong. Rich Armstrong earned his Ph.D. in Nuclear Inorganic Chemistry from Stanford. He retired from the Army as a Major, spent 20 years working at Texaco, and has been married to Nanette for 34 years. He and his wife have birded together in Texas, Oregon, most of North America, and now in Arizona for 9 years. He is the NAAAS steward of the Sedona Wetlands where he has led many field trips for NAAS.This is a two-part class. Friday afternoon learning inside the library, and then the next morning go on two walks outside to practice what you learned.
For the outdoor bird walks on Saturday, April 1 and Sunday, April 2 at Rezzonico Family Park and the Camp Verde Sewer Treatment Plant.
