Homeschool Program - Bird Calls

10:00a to 12:00p
Wed, September 25, 2019
Amy Kocurek

Why do birds have different songs and how can we tell them apart?

Join Ranger Amy in the nature center to discover the unique calls and songs that help our backyard bird friends communicate with one another. When you sign-up for this program your group will be given a specific bird song to memorize prior to the event so that way we can do a bird count in the park.
