Kid’s Class:  Homemade Bird Feeders
Saturday, February 5th, 2 – 3:30 pm
Cost: $20 per child, which includes all supplies and instruction




 

Winter is the perfect time to show a little love to our feathered friends!  It is also a season filled with opportunities to quietly observe and learn more about the birds that visit your neighborhood  We will be making a variety of simple bird feeders using repurposed items such as pine cones and toilet paper rolls.  All ages and abilities are welcome.

February also brings a special chance for kids to become citizen scientists while watching the winged inhabitants of the skies. During the Great Backyard Bird Count, February 18-21, 2022, count the birds in your family’s favorite outdoor spaces, then share your findings to assist scientists in gaining a better understanding of the global bird population. Tools and apps on the Audubon Society website, www.birdcount.org, help families identify species, track findings, and share photos and experiences with other bird watchers around the world.

The class will be on the 12′ x 60′ back porch that is covered with an enclosure…out of wind and rain. Kids can also go feed the goats and walk around the farm/play on the swing set. Parents/Grandparents are welcome to bring a lunch and enjoy time outdoors on the farm.
Note: Any parents who want to drop off older children, must sign a farm liability waiver.
Stoney Creek Farm has been searching for someone to lead kid activities here in Franklin and Cori Williams is the perfect teacher for making every class FUN! We are adding more kid’s classes at affordable prices throughout the year. Your kids will LOVE her innovative teaching style!  Healthy learning environments have an effective teaching strategy where students can learn positive participation and that is what Cori emulates.
