Join Laura Marsh of Nova Conservation for a virtual birdwatching experience from the comfort of your couch!

Laura will share the basics of birding from home, including using binoculars and a field guide, bird feeder use, and identification of common backyard birds. She will also be available to answer questions about bird biology and identification.

Proceeds from this class will go toward Nova Conservation’s Kickstarter Campaign.
