SPECIAL EVENT: Winter Bird Walk
**THIS EVENT WAS RESCHEDULED FROM 12/3 TO 1/21 DUE TO WEATHER**
ABOUT THE EVENT:
With the holidays now a distant memory and the promising energy of spring months away, many of us, including our pups, may be feeling the mid-winter blahs. What should be a time of rest has become a time of restlessness. An invigorating and fun nature walk might be just what is needed!
Join us for a winter birding adventure to identify birds through sounds and behaviors at the Riverwalk in Hooksett, NH. This approximately 1.5 mile walk will be led by Kelly Dwyer, naturalist, award-winning environmental educator, and owner of Nature Education Opportunities.
Along the way, we will delve into:
- Fascinating winter adaptations birds undergo to survive our winters
- Tips for identifying our backyard birds and the migrants wintering in NH
- Strategies for successful winter bird feeding
Pack your binoculars and let nature charge up your energy for a few hours.
A special chew treat will be provided as stimulation for dogs during this adventure. If your dog has allergies or chewing limitations, please alert us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
