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 4 Schedule:

October 16: Owls Rule the Night

What do we mean when we say owls are nocturnal?  Are owls raptors? Let’s take a close look at our birds of prey and find out all about the fascinating birds we call raptors.

 

November 20: Turkey Time

As Thanksgiving approaches, we can’t help but think and wonder about this iconic bird.  Come learn all about where they live, what they eat, and how they raise their families.  We’ll make our own turkey calls and even learn to talk turkey! Come have some fun as we explore the life and times of the eastern wild turkey.

 

December 11: Winter Birds

Not all birds migrate to warmer places in winter.  We’ll take a look at the birds that stick around Duke Farms in the coldest months and discover how they survive in the worst conditions.
