Birding Club provides students with an opportunity to bond over a common interest in birds, their conservation, and in nature as a whole. The meetings include various bird-related presentations, games, or videos and the environment is very casual. Birding Club takes a handful of trips every year to locations such as Duluth in order to observe and learn about birds in their natural habitat.
This organization has no affiliations.
