The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will offer a special early morning birdwalk for families with young children at its Yankauer Nature Preserve in Berkeley County on Saturday, May 11.
The event will be entitled "Bagels and Birds." it will help youngsters and their parents learn about the birds that live and breed in our area and give them an opportunity to hear their morning songs.
If bird-banding is taking place at the preserve that morning, there will be an opportunity to observe it.
Bagels and juice will be provided.
The event will last from 7 to 10 a.m.
Enrollment will be limited and pre-registration is required.
This event is part of a new Audubon program, called "Outdoor Explore!," that is intended to promote a better understanding and appreciation of the natural world in a safe, supervised way. Its activities include hiking, exploration of different local habitats, plant and animal identification and other natural science activities.
Jan Hummer, an experienced natural science educator, is leading each program session.
The program is being made possible by a grant from the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources.
