Tomorrow Family-Friendly Birding Lecture And Outing At Center For Urban Horticulture

The Seattle Audubon Society is holding a "Family-Friendly Birding" lecture and outing tomorrow from 8-11am at the Center for Urban Horticulture (3501 NE 41st Street). 

The cost is $40 member, $55 for non-member and children attend for free (appropriate for ages 7 and up).

The information says:
A fun, engaging class taught by Woody Wheeler - Master Birder, certified interpretive guide, and the owner of Conservation Catalyst, a birding and natural history firm.  
Wheeler will inspire families to take up birding and to care about bird conservation.  Learn how, where and why to go birding. The class will cover how to identify some of the most common birds, the use and choice of binoculars, field guides, applications and internet resources.  
We will start indoors for an introductory presentation.  Then we will then take our new-found skills outdoors and go birding in Union Bay Natural Area. Please bring binoculars if you have them; we will have binoculars for you to borrow if needed. 
Woody is a guide for Naturalist Journeys, an international natural history tour company.  He previously worked for Seattle Parks Foundation, Audubon and The Nature Conservancy.  He is the author of Look Up! Birds and Other Natural Wonders Just Outside Your Window.
