Methow Skills for Kids: Summer is for the birds!
June 21, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm$50
Summer is for the birds! Methow Skills for Kids presents a fun, feathered one-day camp for your young ornithologist. Patrick Hannigan of Nice Nests will share his vast knowledge of all thing flying (birds, bats, even squirrels!) in this one day camp suitable for ages 6-10.
The camp will meet in the Education Station on the TwispWorks campus for introductions and orientation, before heading over to the Nice Nests studio to see where and how Patrick makes his nesting boxes. Then it’s back to the Education Station where the kids can make and decorate their very own chickadee/wren nest box as well as feather and mini nest box magnets. While their creations dry, the group will take a walk to the Twisp Ponds to check out some occupied nest boxes, look for birds, eggs and young and talk about habitat while walking the trails. The Twisp Ponds will also be the site of a picnic lunch (please remember to pack a lunch and water bottle for your child). After lunch the group will return to the Education Station to pick up their nest boxes.
Camp size is limited so make sure you register early to reserve a place for your budding birder!
The camp will be based in the Education Station in the Hosey Building (Building #9) on the TwispWorks campus.
