Who Nests Here?
June 7, 2014
11:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Family Discovery Gallery
You might find a bird’s nest in a field, a marsh or the woods, a park or even in your own backyard. Some birds make a nest on the ground while others like to build way up high in a tree. Look around the Paine gardens and listen and look for bird habitat and homes. Then, working with Danielle Lokken outside at our Shade Garden field station, you can make a pretend bird’s nest complete with a mom and her little ones. You won’t hear any “chirps” from these tiny birds, but you will have a charming decoration to take home!
Family Programs are offered on Saturdays in the Family Discovery Gallery on a drop-in basis from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. The programs are geared for children ages 5-12. Children must be accompanied by an adult. No pre-registration is required. Programs are free with admission to the Paine (free for Paine Members and Big Brothers Big Sisters participants).
