Bird Feeding Celebration

Price not
available
Calendar Next session starts Jan 26, 2019 at 10 am

Join Maine Audubon in celebrating National Bird Feeding month!

Transform your backyard into a bird sanctuary with the help of The Nature Store.

Offering food and water nurtures birds through the harsh winter, and allows us the chance to observe them up close. This is also an excellent opportunity to introduce kids to the natural world right outside our windows. Join us for tips on how!

We will be offering informal talks throughout the day.

Staff will be on hand to answer your questions.
