“Winter is for the Birds” Bird-feeding Program
December 16, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Got the winter blues? How about adding some “wild color” into your life by feeding wintertime birds! Join Mitchell County Conservation Board Naturalist, Chelsea Ewen Rowcliffe for a fun morning learning about winter birding. This free program will be offered on Saturday, December 16th from 9:00 am – 11:00 am at the Milton R. Owen Nature Center, just west of Osage on Highway 9. Participants will learn about winter bird feeding, what species are visiting feeders, and how to attract the most birds to your backyard. We will also be making bird treats to take home. Homemade bird goodies also make a perfect gift for the nature-lover in your life! Please dress for the weather, as we will take a leisurely birding hike around the nature center. Interested participants are asked to please call the nature center at (641) 732-5204 to sign up to ensure we have enough supplies. Let’s make this winter truly “for the birds”!
