Course Title: Introduction to Birding (Fall Term 2018)
"The presentation of information was extremely well done. We learned so much in just a few weeks and Gail made it fun for us with games to improve our knowledge. With technology we learned to identify birds and also hear their songs."
"Gail brought her love of birding, enthusiasm, and a sense of humor to every class."
"Gail was an outstanding teacher. She had a mixture of slides, activities, and outdoor time. I found her to be engaging and very interesting."
