BUILD A BIRD FEEDER WORKSHOP

SATURDAY, JAN. 11 | 10AM-12PM

Join us for this family friendly workshop to learn about our local birds and take home a bird feeder that you build yourself. A bird feeder is an easy way to support your local songbirds by providing food through the winter months, but also to provide your family with bird watching opportunities. Who will visit your feeder? Learn about local birds and birdseed options to help your home become part of a healthy habitat. We provide the tools, materials and guidance to help you complete your project. Fee is $35 per bird feeder not per participant.

Register by December 28 to ensure your spot.
