After last year’s successful event, Audubon Community Nature Center is again offering a special experience on Father’s Day, June 18, 2017.
That Sunday afternoon you can build a birdfeeder in Audubon’s woodshop. The program is open to all, but this is a great opportunity for dads and granddads to be together with their family.
Feeding and watching birds is an activity that different generations can all enjoy. Any time between 2 and 4 p.m. you can join naturalists and volunteers in the workshop to build a birdfeeder that you can take home to attract birds to your yard.
Designed and prepared by Audubon volunteers, the parts will be cut out and ready to assemble with nails and a hammer. Materials, tools, and instructions will be given, and adults are expected to help younger children.
Then stop by the Window on Wildlife in the Nature Center to watch the birds at Audubon’s feeders.
The cost is $10 per birdfeeder.
Reservations are appreciated, but walk-ins are welcome. Online reservations close on Thursday, June 15; they can be made by clicking through Attend a Program/Programs and Workshops under Plan Your Visit or through the Programs link in the top bar at auduboncnc.org.
