Birding Workshop, Becoming and Outdoors Woman- June 22-24

Here is a great opportunity for beginning birders “to learn to identify birds through field marks, sounds and habitat,” said Liz Lodman, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks coordinator of the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshops.
I am pleased to be teaching a session on backyard birding, where I will cover creating habitat for birds in your yard, a discussion of appropriate feeders and ways to provide housing.

The Becoming an Outdoors Woman program is a fantastic program run by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks. I’ve had to opportunity to teach classes to this group in the past and it has always been a wonderful experience.

The birding workshop begins Friday evening, June 22, at the Ninepipes Lodge near Charlo, and runs through noon on Sunday. Experienced bird watchers from across the state will share their knowledge of Montana’s birds and will lead morning and evening bird walks. The workshop also includes a bird and wildlife watching tour of the National Bison Range.

“Wildlife viewing is one of the fastest growing outdoor activities,” Lodman said. “This workshop will be a great opportunity to learn the basics you need to actively enjoy bird watching.”

Register ASAP, these courses always fill up fast!

The workshop fee is $98, and includes all meals during the workshop. Participants are responsible for their own lodging. To register, visit Or contact Liz Lodman by phone 406-444-9940, email:;
