Birding 101

Starts Mon, Oct 18, 2021

Are you interested in learning about bird identification in an in-person class and field trips, in a safe and fun environment? Look no further! Birding 101 is the beginning birding class that’s been so successful for over a decade. It is designed to give budding birders the structure, knowledge, and tools to bird with confidence.

This course is made up of three classroom sessions in the evenings of October 18, 25, and November 1, 2021, from 6:30–9pm, in Monrovia, CA. There will also be two field trips in the mornings of October 23 and 30, 2021, starting at 8am at Los-Angeles-area locations to be determined. Participants are expected to attend all three classes and both field trips.

To register, fill out the form below. Registration is $100 for non-LAB members (this includes LAB membership for 1 year), and $80 for LAB members. Registration is only $10 for LAB-S student members ages 12-17. For students, a parent must register and take the course as well; please fill out a separate registration form for the student and parent.
