Project Feeder Watch

Be part of this national family-friendly science project. No volcanoes to build, no posters to make---just sit back and watch the birds that feed at the Nature Center's bird feeders. Bird populations can tell us a lot about our climate and habitat changes. Help the naturalist track the number of birds and species that come to our feeders. You don't have to be an expert; we will help with identification.
