Fall Birding Classes

Note: This schedule, fees, and room number are now final. Field trip schedule is tentative.

Evening bird classes taught by Joe Morlan and endorsed by Golden Gate Audubon Society will be starting September 12 and 13, 2012. All classes meet 7-9:15 p.m. in room 218 (except for Wednesday 9/12 which will be in room 139) at City College of San Francisco, John Adams Campus. Free parking is in the school lot adjacent to the building at 1860 Hayes Street.

The instructor is co-author of "Birds of San Francisco and the Bay Area" and "Birds of Northern California." He is also coordinator of the recorded "Northern California Birdbox" sponsored by Golden Gate Audubon Society. Slides illustrate all lectures, and the text for all classes is "A Field Guide to Birds of North America," sixth edition, by the National Geographic Society. "The Sibley Guide to Birds" is recommended as an adjunct text for both classes. Ornithology I will not be offered this semester.

The instructor may arrange optional field trips on weekends. Please bring binoculars and field guides to class if you have them. Fees are $145 for the seven week class ( EA110), $130 for six week classes (EA115, EA120), and $115 for the five week classes (EA125) but there is a $15 discount for each class if you pre-register at least a week early. Pre-registration is strongly advised. For further information call (415) 561-1860. Registration opens July 2nd. You can register online, or mail or fax this registration form.
