Have you ever been curious about the natural world around you? Are you interested in learning more about birds? In this class we will have the unique hands-on opportunity to explore a collection of bird specimens on loan from the Wenatchee Valley College Biology Department. We’ll start off the class learning about what it means to be a naturalist, and then discuss the importance and benefits of keeping a nature journal. Next, we’ll take a closer look into the lives of birds, bird science (ornithology), and bird identification. You’ll then create your own nature journal entry while observing a real bird specimen up close! Curiosity and creativity are encouraged. Leave with a new appreciation for the birds, plants, and other animals that live alongside us.
Instructors: Tucker Jonas is an Educator with Wenatchee River Institute. He has been teaching people of all ages about nature for ten years, and loves spending time outdoors looking for birds.
