Saturday, February 17, 2018: Beginning Birding for All. Who is that feathered creature pecking at your feeder? Come to us. We know. Watch and count birds, participate in “bird” activities, and get help with identifications. Make a bird feeder to take home, play the beaks game, examine the size and mass of birds and other activities.
Don’t miss our Beginning Bird Hike at 9 a.m. and get prepared to be part of Cornell’s “Great Backyard Bird Count” — the nationwide citizen scientist survey this weekend!
Part of this program will take place indoors in an accessible facility. Hiking is on natural surface trails across uneven terrain for approximately 2 miles.
This event is sponsored by the Thorn Creek Audubon Society.
