Phone: (518) 872-0800

Lots of birds stick around for the long, cold winter and survive on seeds and berries. Bring a plastic net bag (the kind onions come in) to make a unique bird feeder to take home and hang in your yard. We will go outside and find native berries birds love to use in our muffin mix! While they bake, we will use binoculars and field guides to view and study the birds at our feeders. Take home a feeder and a list of shrubs that will feed the birds in your backyard. Free program, is open to adults and children.

Call 872-0800 to register.
