Bird watching and feeding is a fun, learning activity and great hobby for kids of all ages, especially during the cold winter months ahead. Familiar materials like pinecones, toilet paper rolls, string, peanut butter and more will be used to make backyard bird feeders for backyard fun.

Spring Wildflower Walk & Magnification (Apr. 6)
Springtime is in bloom with emerging plants, leaves and wildflowers. Jeffrey Woods has many wildflower varieties including bloodroot, spring beauties, toothworts, bluebells, mayapples and more. While not all plants will be in bloom, children will explore the woodland floor and learn what’s blooming and use magnifying glasses to discover the hidden wonders inside plants, insects, soil and more. Wildflower identification handouts will be available.
