Virtual Programs

For the Birds: Natural Ornaments – Friday, February 24

The winter can be a hard time for birds, as they search for food. By using a few supplies at home, learn how to create natural ornaments that you hang outside to help feed the birds. A suggested list of supplies will be emailed before the program to help you prepare for this virtual program. We will use the Microsoft Teams platform for this program.
