Winter Bird Feeding/Watching & Winter Wildlife Habitat Workshop

Date: Saturday, December 6, 2014
Time: 10 AM - 11:15 AM
Location: Oelwein Library
Cost: Free!
Who: All Ages / Public Workshop

    Snow and cold weather are part of this time of year, so how about learning more about enjoying the winter activity of bird watching and feeding, plus wildlife tracking and habitats? 

    The Fayette Iowa State University Extension and Outreach office is hosting a free public workshop about Winter Bird Feeding/Watching & Winter Wildlife Habitat.  

    For many this is a fun way to appreciate nature and help birds survive.  In fact, the US Fish and Wildlife Service reports that 51.3 million (one out of six) Americans enjoy this, making it the fastest growing outdoor sport.  

    Speakers for the workshop include Dawn L. Amundson, Fayette County Conservation Board Environmental Education Coordinator, and Ron Lenth, Iowa State University Extension & Outreach – Fayette County Program Coordinator.  

    The workshop is free and open to the public.  

    Join in the excitement of learning what birds might come to visit bird feeders, make your own "Recycled Bird Feeder" to take home if you want to, and more. 

    Educational handout materials and samples of various feed types and feeders will be on display.
