Event: Back Yard Birder Class – Winter Care & Feeding in the Garden


‘Winter Care & Feeding in the Garden’:  Christie Lassen of Wild Birds Unlimited will present the December 2 program.  The ‘Backyard Birding’ series is hosted by the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society (OPAS).  Her presentation will cover general bird feeding, including types of feeders and different feeds for attracting specific birds with an emphasis on our over-wintering species and clean bird feeding.  She will include specific ideas for providing continuing winter water supplies, ways to feed the birds – not the rodents and meeting the needs of the Anna’s Hummingbird which has started staying here throughout the year.  She will address specific questions from participants.

This class is third in the series presented by OPAS.  All sessions are at the Dungeness River Audubon Center in Railroad Bridge Park from 10 am until noon.  The public is invited to attend any or all of the sessions.  For adults over age 18 a five dollar fee will be payable for each class.  After five classes are attended, a free year of membership in OPAS will be offered.
