Share your President’s Day with Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist, Bethany Gray, as we learn about the winter birds of southwest Ohio, their behaviors, and the impact feeders make in supporting winter survival. We will contribute to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's Great Backyard Bird Count by the warmth of the Trailside fire before helping to feed the birds found in our backyards by creating a pinecone birdfeeder! Peanut allergen warning. $5 family.
