Welcome Back Birds!
Did the birds know there has been a lockdown? Who knows? But we do know there are plenty of birds visiting the Urban Environmental Center and we can use them to check in with ourselves and with nature.

While parents check out our Youth Farm Stand, kids can:
build a take-home bird house
use binoculars on a guided bird walk through the garden
make a take-home pair of "bird viewers"
learn some bird scouting and sketching tips
Masks are required and social distancing will be practiced at this outdoor event. Limited to 8 children. Pre-registration is required. Email

If you want to get a flying start check out this cool birdsong tutorial from the Cornell Bird Academy.
