Thursday, Feb. 29, 4 to 5 p.m. Backyard Birding

Final program in the Winter Explore! Series. Backyard birding is just what it sounds like—looking for birds in your own backyard! You don’t need to go on a hike to interact with nature. Sometimes, nature is right outside our door! Students learn how to identify common birds, how to use a monocular to spot birds, and how to be respectful while birding. They will also make a bird feeder to take home, and read a story about what birds do in winter to survive.  

Instructor: Mary Claire King • Grades: K–5

Cost: $6 member, $7 non-member.  Limit: 15.

Location:Pine Hill Recreation Area
