Seattle Audubon Master Program Informational Meeting Tonight At Center For Urban Horticulture

MB Class on Whidbey 2



Seattle Audubon’s popular Master Birder course, offered every other year, is holding an informational meeting tonight from 7-8:30pm at the UW Botanic Gardens’ Center for Urban Horticulture, (3501 NE 41st Street), in the Douglas Classroom.

Applications for the next class, which include taking a short identification quiz at Seattle Audubon, are due on March 5 by 5pm.

The information says:

Seattle Audubon’s popular Master Birder program is an exceptional opportunity to learn about the birds of Washington. The next session of this two-semester, education-for-service program will begin in September 2016.  
For accepted students, there are optional pre-class field trips in spring and summer 2016. The primary instructor is the noted Northwestern naturalist and educator Dennis Paulson, and the class always attracts more applicants than can be accommodated.  
Participants are expected to be intermediate-level birders and to contribute 100 hours of volunteer service to Seattle Audubon, in addition to the class fee of $550.

  • February 24, Optional information meeting.
