Lectures & Classes

November - April

In Birds of the Beach, Adam DiNuovo, Shorebird Stewardship Program Coordinator with Audubon Florida, will discuss the life history of these birds and the amazing journeys many of them make annually. Winter shorebirds are notoriously difficult to ID, so practicing the skills learned in this class is essential. You will learn how to use plumage, size, and behavior to help with identification. Classroom session is followed by a field trip to a nearby beach to practice new skills. Offered monthly from Nov. – April.
