Birding is one of the most popular outdoor activities in the U.S., and actually ranks above day hiking and visiting natural areas. L.L.Bean can help you see how easy it is to begin birding. You’ll learn about binoculars, some basic bird identification skills, and some easily accessible resources to help you get started.
Looking for some great (fall, winter, spring, summer) local places to get out and explore? Our knowledgeable experts will discuss some great local parks, preserves and other hidden gems where you can expand your love of the outdoors.
No matter where you are going or what you are doing, having the right clothing and gear can make all the difference. Come learn about clothing, organizers and other gear that will help you get the most out of your next trip.
