Simple and Novel Techniques for Feeding Birds | In-person class

February 12, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This class is full

Using different methods for feeding birds is a fun and impactful way to attract a variety of bird species to your home garden. In this class, join us for a morning of examining feeder designs, food offerings, and placement techniques developed by Herb Lewis through his many years of observing feeding behaviors. Proven in Herb’s own backyard bird oasis, these simple and novel techniques can help bring birds into close view and make your bird watching experience even more enjoyable. Weather permitting, we will be taking a walk to view examples of a few designs.

Capacity is limited, so reserve your spot today!
