AMN-Birding Program will be offered every other year. 2019-2020 will be our next program. Applications for this program are open until filled. The program generally starts in July/August and ends in April/May with approximately one workshop per month. There is no workshop in December because we participate in Christmas Bird Counts. There are two overnight trips. One to Woodworth where we stay in LDWF facilities and one at Rockefeller Wildlife Refuge. The fee for the program is $250. For more information about the program, please send an email to AMNBirding@ gmail.com. If you do not have email, you can call (337) 291-8448 to be put in touch with our program Director.
