September 13 - Bird Feeding Primer
Bird feeding is an extremely popular fall and winter activity. We will explore food preferences, feeder placement, local winter bird species, common problems, mistakes, and more. This program will help the bird feeder get a jump on the upcoming season but will be equally informative and entertaining for those that do not feed the birds.
October 11 - Brook Trout
Brook trout are one of our most beautiful and interesting native fish species. New York, Pennsylvania, along with 7 other states have chosen it as their official state fish. October falls in the middle of the Brook Trout's breeding season and will be the month you can join us to find out more about this amazing aquatic resident.
November 8 - White-Tailed Deer
The White-Tailed Deer is one of our most recognizable and commonly encountered wildlife species. It can evoke strong and varied emotions ranging from the joy of seeing a newborn spotted fawn, anger/frustration in finding damage to garden or yard plantings, anxiousness during dawn and dusk commutes and the great anticipation to a successful hunting season. Come to find out more about this animal that "connects" to so many people on so many levels.
December 13 - Evergreens
Evergreens are tree species that retain their leaves (needles) throughout the year, hence "ever green". Winter is the time that this group tends to take center stage. We will examine some of our local evergreens and discover many interesting aspects of these wonderful trees beyond the fact of "staying green" in the winter.
This program is for adults only. Registration is required. Admission is free.
