Nature Craft with Angel – Make Your Own Bird Feeder Ornaments

Online, hosted by NYC Gov Parks

Birds rely on a steady source of food throughout the seasons to survive cold nights, migration, and harsh winters. That’s exactly why this month’s Nature Crafts program will teach you how much fun it is to make your very own bird feeder ornaments to help feed the birds that may be traveling through your yard!
Join Environmental Educator Angel Ehlers on this hands-on virtual journey, as she takes you through the easy process of making your own bird feeder from a few simple materials and ingredients. Angel will also teach you about some of the birds that you may be lucky enough to see visit your very own feeder in early Spring!
