Natural Ornaments for Birds
Saturday, December 11, 10 a.m.
During the winter food can be hard to find for animals, birds in particular. We can help them by creating a Wildlife Tree. First take a walk and see how many animal species we can find. Then we will learn how to make an edible ornament which the birds will love to eat. Finally take your ornaments home and make your own wildlife tree. *This is an indoor event*
