FEBRUARY

Sunday, February 6, 2-4PM Pickering Creek -
Bird Walk-n-Talk, Cost:  $10 adult/$5 Child,
The new
Bird Walk n’ Talk series introduces beginning birders of all ages
to the birds found along the Delmarva Peninsula. Each month will be an
exploration of the habitat, identification and calls of different bird groups.
Naturalists will lead introductions about the monthly bird groups, then adults
and children will split up for specialized hikes. Adults learn some in-depth
identification skills and bird/habitat connections. Kids look for birds then get
to interpret their imaginations into bird crafts. Hot beverages and
homemade treats await us on our return to ease the winter chills.
Please register in advance by calling 410/822-4903. Pre-registration is
required. Children are considered ages 15 and under.
