According to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, bird watching is the fastest growing outdoor activity in America with more than 51 million participants. Western Nevada Community College Yerington is offering a non-credit Community Services class featuring this popular activity Friday and Saturday, Nov. 17-18.
"People who have taken the class have told me that it is really informative and that they really enjoyed it," said Yerington Coordinator Roberta Burkart. "Participants will be able to identify different types of wild birds and understand what they are doing in their natural habitats."
Beginning Bird Watching (CMSV 101C, Call #38045, Sec. Y01) includes a meeting Friday from 7-9 p.m. and a field trip Saturday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. "The field trip location is always a surprise," said Burkart. "Instructor Julian Pellegrini scouts out different places around the Mason Valley and chooses an area based on where the migratory birds are at the time."
