During the Baby Birds, Bird Nests, and Creating with Clay program, each child will learn about how birds choose their habitat, build a nest, and raise baby birds. Each child will build their own bird nest out of natural material and create a bird and an egg out of clay. Topics will include migration, why different birds build different types of nests, the habitat requirements for nesting, and parental care by birds. During the program, participants will listen to a story and sing bird songs, look closely at different nests from our nest collection, examine artwork of birds and their nests, go one a nature hike to look for bird nests (if the site has appropriate habitat), build their own nest out of natural materials, and hand build a bird and birds eggs out of clay. Each participant will go home with a nest they built and a clay bird and bird egg.
Cost per class is $150 for a one hour program for a single class
