Birds have many different ways to cope with cold weather. Come join us as we learn about how different types of birds are able to adapt to the change in weather.  We will play bird-themed games, take a short walk to search to birds, and make tasty bird treats.

Bird treats will be peanut-free; send us an email if you have other food allergies that may need to be taken into account. If you have binoculars feel free to bring them, but they are not required. Remember to dress for the weather and wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty.
