Autumn Raptor Workshops Scheduled

Join Montana Audubon for a Raptor Identification or Raptor Photography Workshop in the Helena area this September!

Learning how to identify raptors takes time. If you feel like you need to improve your raptor identification skills we have the opportunity for you. This fall, Montana Audubon’s Director of Policy & Science, Amy Seaman, is offering two Raptor Identification Workshops and field trips to the Big Belts Golden Eagle Migration Survey site, near Helena. We will offer an introductory-level and advanced raptor ID class. The introductory course will be held Friday, September 13th followed by a field trip Saturday the 14th, and the Advanced ID course will be held Friday, September 27th followed by a field trip Saturday the 28th. Participation in the beginner workshop is $50 and will be limited to 20 people. Participation in the advanced identification workshop is $75 and will also be limited to 20 people. For details on these events, please email Janet Johnston at [email protected].
