Spring Birding with Scott Surner

May 29—6:30 am - 12:00 pm

Sliding Scale

This year’s Spring Birding Class will consist of 7 Field Trips and 3 Zoom Meetings. The class will be limited to 10 people and we’ll generally meet at the designated location for each trip. Some of the purposed locations will be Quabbin Park, Rail Trail (Amherst) Nash Hill Rd, Williamsburg, Montague Sandplains and more. These locations are not written in stone and could change depending on the weather and avian activity. Generally, most classes will begin at 7am, but a couple of classes could begin at 6:00am.

Participants should plan on bringing water & snacks and have good comfortable footwear. Everyone will be required to wear a mask and carpooling will not be possible. Plan to be on your feet most of the morning, with most walks on fairly level ground with the exception of the Mt. Holyoke walk.

Cost: Tier A – $420, Tier B – $336, Tier C – $252, Tier D – $168 (available for EBT, WIC, or MassHealth Card to Culture participants)
