  • Edible Treats for Birds

    During the winter, birds face a challenge: finding enough food to survive the cold, snowy weather at a time when food is more scarce. You can help by putting out homemade, birdseed treats, which also decorate your backyard trees! Since you'll be taking your treats home, be sure to bring a container with you. Hot chocolate and cookies will be served. We will also discuss bird related Citizen Science projects that you can participate in over the winter.
