Birding 101 is tailored for beginning birders. It utilizes both classroom sessions and field trips to teach everything from bird identification to field etiquette to birding techniques and resources. This year the course will be taught by local birding experts Bob Dean and Wil Hershberger. An impressive collection of images and recordings, many captured by the instructors, enhance the course. 

 The classroom sessions are held in Room 114 Instructional East at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's National Conservation Training Center just north of Shepherdstown. The field trips will be held at various locations around the Panhandle from roughly 7 a.m.–12 noon on the corresponding Saturdays (April  4, 11, 18 & 25).

Class size will be limited to 24 participants. The course is open to people of all ages but children younger than 15 must be accompanied by an adult.

Registration is required. 

*All but $50 of the registration fees will be refunded up to one week before the program begins. PVAS reserves the right to cancel the workshop due to unforeseen issues. In this case, a full refund will be given.
