Saturday, Dec. 22
Winter Backyard Birding, 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
Spring is a long way away, and Pennsylvania’s birds are dealing with harsh winter conditions. Setting up a backyard bird feeder is an excellent way to help them survive a difficult time of year. You can join Sinnemahoning State Park’s naturalist for an informative program on attracting, feeding and identifying the area’s winter residents. The program will wind up with a chance to make a pinecone bird feeder to hang in your own backyard. Meet at the new Wildlife Center on Park Road near the Cameron/Potter county line. Call the park at 814-647-8401 for more information or directions.
