Tahoma Audubon offers beginning, intermediate and advanced birding classes to our members and others in the community who want to learn more about birds and their habitats. We also offer occassional bird- and habitat-related workshops.
Volunteer instructors design, plan and lead classes, which typically include at least one birding field trip, and Tahoma Audubon provides marketing support. Volunteer instructors also receive a small stipend for their work.
We are particularly looking for people with birding experience and knowledge who could teach intermediate- or advanced-level classes.
Classes can be held at the Adriana Hess Audubon Center or Tacoma Nature Center, pending space availability, or at another location of your choosing.
