Feeding and watching birds is an activity that different generations can all enjoy. Any time between 2 and 4 p.m. you can join naturalists and volunteers in the workshop to build a birdfeeder that you can take home to attract birds to your yard.

Designed and prepared by Audubon volunteers, the parts will be cut out and ready to assemble with nails and a hammer. Materials, tools, and instructions will be given, and adults are expected to help younger children.

Then stop by the Window on Wildlife in the Nature Center to watch the birds at Audubon’s feeders.

The cost is $10 per birdfeeder.
