“Landscaping for Birds,” the first in the series of eight classes in “Backyard Birding” is from 10 a.m.-noon Saturday, Oct. 3 at the Dungeness River Audubon Center, Railroad Bridge Park.
Joe Holtrop, executive director of the Clallam Conservation District, will present important aspects of a bird friendly yard, including food, water, and shelter, with an emphasis on the use of plants native to this area.
Following the class is an optional field trip (a two-mile hike at the Dungeness Recreation Area) to see native plants and where they are growing.
The series of classes, hosted by members of the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, is intended for residents of this area who are interested in knowing more about birds seen locally each season of the year and learning how to develop good habitats for wild birds.
“Backyard Birding” may be taken either as individual classes or in a series. The cost of each session is $5 and is free for anyone under 18. After the completion of five sessions, participants will be offered free membership in OPAS for one year.
