Verde River Monitoring and Education Program with the Verde River Institute - (must sign up: firstname.lastname@example.org)
These classes serve as an excellent way to educate Audubon members on the Verde River and how its ecosystems conserve birds!
The Institute's Spring/Summer Monitoring and Education course is still open for new students! The Wednesday slots have all been filled, but we still have space on the Saturday lessons! Classes will be held weekly for 10 weeks from April 29th until July1st for Saturday students. Classes meet at Tuzigoot River Access Point (TuziRAP) in Clarkdale, where we'll have a 1-hour discussion of that day's topics; followed by a 4-hour (or so) kayak trip from Lower Tapco River Access Point (TapcoRAP) to TuziRAP.
Along the way, we'll discuss experiential things about the day's lesson topics, and we'll stop halfway down to e at lunch and talk. The kayak trips always present unexpected opportunities to discuss something about the river along the way.
Summer/Fall classes will start in mid-July (probably July 19. )
