Take a Class with Me!

Finley National Wildlife Refuge, December 2018.

Since 2000, I have taught birding classes in the Portland area and have built a solid reputation as a knowledgeable, patient, and enthusiastic teacher. 

Find me at these nature centers teaching subjects such as Birding by Ear, Beginning Birding, Forest Birds, Birds of Prey of Western Oregon, Winter Birds, and more.
