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, and more:

Jackson Bottom Wetlands in Hillsboro. Fall / Winter 2019 I'll lead two field days, one to Ankeny NWR October 26 and one to Tillamook Bay November 2, co-led with Steve Engel. Tillamook is currently full, but get on the wait list just in case. If you are new to JBW, you will first need to create an account with the City of Hillsboro before you can register online. This must be done by phone. See registration page for details.

Hoyt Arboretum in Washington Park. I'll be offering Forest Birds there this fall on November 9, Winter Birds on December 7, and Winter Raptors of Western Oregon on December 14.

TreeSong Nature Awareness and Retreat Center outside Washougal, Washington. Join me for a Birds of Prey class November 16 that includes a field trip to Steigerwald NWR.

Bookmark my class page as well as these nature centers and check back often! I will be adding a birding by ear class at Tualatin Hills Nature Park and Cooper Mountain next spring.

Hire me to teach a private class or lead your out-of-town birder guests on a local birding trip! Contact me for details.
