Exercise your brain younger while you enjoy the out-of-doors. This class will visit a different, excellent birding site on each field trip. The field trips will concentrate on the field identification, life styles, and ecology of local birds. Ron Melin is a skilled facilitator and mentor who utilizes practical birding skills to teach the beginner birder. You'll learn the fundamentals of using binoculars, field guide, bird field marks, and birding by habitat.
The first class, orientation,will be held on the CSUDH campus and will include information on the locations of the outings, equipment, and what to wear, useful books, and birding basics. Binoculars are not required, but if you have a pair, bring them to the first class. The field trips will be off campus. Students will be responsible for their own transportation.
