(for families with children ages 5 and up)
A collaborative program offered by Reeves-Reed Arboretum and Wild Birds Unlimited.
Attracting birds is a great way to bring nature up close and into your backyard. As it is easy to attract up to 32 different species of native birds to a backyard, bird feeding will provide hours of entertainment for everyone in the family. Pete Axelrod from Wild Birds Unlimited will familiarize participants with how to use bird foods, bird feeders, water and shelter to attract the widest variety of birds and give tips on making your backyards bird friendly.
Jackie Kondel, RRA's Director of Education, will continue the program by helping families learn to identify the common and not so common birds that may visit your feeder. After this program you will be ready to join thousands of other families counting birds in their backyard as part of the Great American Backyard Bird Count! Registration is required.
Please note that cost is per family.
