Arts and Birding

July 12 to 17, 2015

A sample schedule is now available for the upcoming session!

Sharpen your birding skills and learn new ways to enjoy birds with some of the country's best photographers, artists, and writers. This program includes fun birding adventures each morning, followed by more in-depth study in your choice specialty of bird photography or bird art/writing.

Field trips will include visits to seabird islands for photography and sketching of seabirds as well as opportunities to learn new skills through your choice of workshops on audio recording, journal writing, sketching and poetry.  This program is ideal for beginners as well as avid birders and photographers.

No experience or talent needed! Just a desire to experience and enjoy birds in fresh, new ways.

This session is a best bet for bringing a non-birding spouse - they will certainly find substance in this exciting new program that offers something for everyone!
