See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
The varied woodland, wetland and lake habitats of the Superior National Forest support 155 species of birds, yielding more diversity than any other national forest. With birding instructors who have more than 15 years of experience, explore the southern edge of this boreal forest to study birds in nesting territories. This is the ideal time of year to learn bird songs, identification, habitats and feeding behaviors.


Highlights

• During early morning field trips, expect to encounter approximately 100 species including Common Loon, Bald Eagle, Grey Jay and Raven.
• Observe up to eight species of flycatchers, several thrushes and vireos, kinglets, and 20 species of warblers, including the Connecticut.
• Small groups for field trips — usually 8-10 participants per instructor — and total group maximum of 18.

Program Notes

So you can get the most out of your experience, all of our birding programs have a maximum participant-to-instructor ratio of 14:1. Road Scholar birding programs are conducted in accordance with the American Birding Association’s Code of Ethics. Learn more at http://www.aba.org/about/ethics.html
