Event Details

Join a Duke Farms Educator one Sunday morning a month to learn why Duke Farms is for the Birds!  During this series, Junior Ornithologists will gain an understanding of what makes birds so unique and fascinating.   Through games and classroom activities we will explore the life histories of birds and delve into topics such as bird biology and adaptations for flight, bird behavior, diets and habitats. We will learn to use binoculars and field guides and will go outside to see what our feathered friends are up to throughout the year. 

These programs are designed for families with children in grades K-6. At least 1 adult must accompany each child during this program, with no more than two adults accompanying each child. Please note that we cannot accommodate any children who are not currently in Kindergarten. This includes the younger siblings of any registered K through 6 participant as well as any toddlers or babies in arms, carriers, slings or strollers.

ACCOMPANYING ADULTS ARE ALSO REQUIRED TO REGISTER.

Part of each program is spent indoors learning about the topic of the month. Then we go outdoors to explore nature in the field.  Appropriate shoes are required and this program will run rain or shine, so please dress for the weather!

Mini-series 3 Schedule:

(All classes are held on Sundays from 9:00am to 11:00am)

July 23: Habitats are for the Birds

Birds have adaptations that make them well suited to live in some habitats, but not all habitats. Let’s explore the meadows, lakes and woodlands of Duke Farms and learn about the different kinds of birds that call these places home.

August 20: Birds, Beaks and Bugs

What’s a bird’s favorite meal?  The answer depends on what kind of bill is attached to the bird. And what’s the difference between a bill and a beak anyway? We’ll explore these topics then go out and observe birds and their bills in action.

September 17: Fall Migration

Every fall, many species of birds prepare for fall migration.  We’ll talk about some of the birds that fly elsewhere for the winter and how banding birds helps scientists study bird migration.   No promises, but we hope to have a hands on bird banding session with an experienced scientist!
