Pinecone Bird Feeder Workshop for Kids

194 Bayville Rd
Locust Valley, New York 11560

With winter here, our feathered friends are going to be seeking extra food to help them survive the colder weather. Join Huntington-Oyster Bay Audubon as we learn how to give them a boost! We will start by reading, Animals in Winter, by Henrietta Bancroft, a story of how our wild neighbors prepare for the winter’s cold; then turn crafty and use pine cones, suet, dried fruits, and birdseed to make bird feeders. We’ll hang them on a tree in the Children’s Habitat at Bailey Arboretum, and then take a winter’s ramble in the woods! When we return, we will quietly observe the birds that have arrived to enjoy their treats! For kids of all ages and easy enough for young children to enjoy. Note that most birdseed is processed in plants that also process peanuts if allergies are an issue. Please dress according to the weather. Group size limited to 15. Registration is a must: 631-903-5556.
Starts at 12PM.
