Winter Birdwatching: UFM Class

Monday, November 28, 2022 - 10:00am

Location: Community Room at Meadowlark

UFM Lifetime Learning and Meadowlark present Winter Birdwatching. This three-session course will begin Monday, Nov. 28, from 10 a.m. to noon in the Community Room. The second and third sessions will meet Tuesday, Nov. 29, and Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Led by Tim Cable, Winter Birdwatching participants will be introduced to birds that spend their winters in the Manhattan area. Winter birds include many types of waterfowl, raptors, finches, and sparrows. This course will include both classroom sessions and field trips to observe birds at local birding locations. Bird walks will be leisurely with frequent stopping to look or listen to the birds. Bringing binoculars to class is highly recommended, but not necessary for participation.

Enrollment is now open and can be completed by calling (785) 539-8763. If the office is not open, leave a message, and a staff member will call you back. This class is offered through UFM at no charge to Meadowlark residents, and Passport members may attend with a 20-percent discount. Reminder: Meadowlark does not have a partnership agreement with Osher Lifetime Learning; therefore, Osher classes are not available at a discount to Meadowlark affiliates.
