Just in time for spring migration!

Birding is one of the country’s fastest growing hobbies, and there is no place better to enjoy it in Brooklyn than at Green-Wood! This two-part course teaches the why, where, how, and what of birding to the beginner. With over 250 species of birds residing in, or passing through, the Big Apple every year, learn where to look for, and how to identify, many species of this diverse group of animals. The second session ends with a walk through the Cemetery, applying some of the lessons learned in the classroom.

 

Green-Wood’s official birding checklist is available to pick up from the security guard at the Main Entrance at 25th Street or to print here. Comfortable footwear is recommended.

 

Meets at the Prospect Park West Entrance at 20th Street and 9th Avenue. One ticket secures a spot for both sessions.

 

$35 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $40 for non-members
