Nature Discovery Workshop Series


Stay Tuned for the 2017-2018 Workshop Line-up

In 2015, San Diego Audubon kicked off an exciting new line of public workshops – The Nature Discovery Workshop Series. This fall we will begin our third year of this succesful program. These classes offer a variety of nature topics throughout the year. No matter what your goals are, we hope to inspire nature lovers like you. Our workshops aim to encourage you to enjoy more wildlife around your home, increase your birding skills, become more observant in nature, and explore some of the amazing habitats that San Diego has to offer. Check out last year's workshop line-up below, and stay tuned for more details about the 2017-2018 program series in the coming months!
