BIRDS OF ANZA BORREGO w/ Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park
Join Kurt Leuschner in this weekend class and explore the oases in and around the Anza Borrego Desert.

The Anza Borrego Desert provides the perfect resting place for migrants such as warblers, flycatchers, grosbeaks, and other tired travelers on their way south for the winter. After a short lecture Tuesday night, October 18, by Zoom, the class spends Saturday and Sunday in the field, studying both migrant and resident bird species. Participants will learn about: conservation, ecology, natural history, and special adaptations to the harsh desert environment. Participants will need to make their own weekend accommodations. For more information about accommodations for the weekend, contact the Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park.
