The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will offer a workshop on "Backyard Birding" on Jan. 12. The workshop will be held from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at CraftWorks at Cool Spring Farm, in southern Jefferson County.
Participants will learn how to attract and feed birds, and how to build a simple platform feeder. There will also be instruction in identification and recording techniques.
This is one of a series of workshops on different natural history topics the Society will sponsor this year.
The workshops are elective courses for individuals enrolled in the Society's Potomac Valley Master Naturalist Program. However, each session is also open on a space-available basis to members of the general public who are interested in learning more about certain aspects of natural history but do not want to commit to a full course of Master Naturalist instruction.
For this workshop, there will be a fee of $20 for Master Naturalist Program members and trainees and $25 for members of the public.
Enrollment for each workshop will be limited, and pre-registration is essential. To register and get more information, go to the Society's website at www.potomacaudubon.org. Or contact Ellen Murphy at 304-676-8739 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
