The Details:

For kids in grades K–5. Students will search for birds during a hike on Fox Crossing Trail, exploring the trail and learning about how our feathered friends cope with cold winter weather. Do birds ask themselves, “Should I stay or should I go?” Kids investigate the challenges and benefits for birds of staying in our area or migrating to someplace warmer, and learn about special adaptations (including diet and behavioral changes) of birds that don’t migrate.
Kids also discover how birds’ beaks and bills are specialized tools to help them capture and eat their food. The kids will experience “catching food” with different household items that work like birds’ beaks and bills. Other activities include building a bird feeder to take home and place outside to help birds find food during the winter months. Cost: $6 for Institute members; $7 general public.
