ECOLOGY TOPIC FOR WHITAKER PONDS NATURAL AREA: A Bird's Eye View! 

At Whitaker Ponds Natural Area, the ponds, slough and the banks that surround each are full of birds, wildlife, trees and mushrooms! During this inter-generational ecology program, participants will spend the morning exploring and learning about all the exciting life at the park. The afternoon activity will include the construction of a natural, semi-permanent art piece - a bird blind that offers cover to humans while trying to remain stealthy so birds & wildlife can be observed in their natural habitat! Come for just the morning education portion, or join us for the full day and help us build the bird blind in the afternoon!
