Join us for a Birding Weekend at Seyon Lodge September 23-25, 2011
beauty of northern Vermont and inspired by others eager to hone their birding skills. Led by two sisters passionate about Vermont wildlife, Bridget and Amy Butler, will be the guides for this weekend which is sure to be both relaxing and stimulating. Enjoy evening slide shows and conversations on fall migration, bird identification, and bird language. During the day, refine your skills in the field on foot and by kayak or canoe. This program is appropriate for all skill levels. You'll turn confusing fall warblers into a welcome autumnal challenge with the help of Amy and Bridget, learn to see nature and wildlife through the eyes of birds, and find out how to “pay it forward” for birds and other wildlife.
