February is perfect for “love birds”. Enjoy fun, interactive activities related to birds at the Love Your Backyard Birds Second Saturday event at the Water Resources Education Center from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
This is also the perfect opportunity to get ready for the Great Backyard Bird Count occurring Friday, February 16 through Monday, February 19, 2018. Anyone can take part in the Great Backyard Bird Count, from beginning bird watchers to experts, and you can participate from your backyard, or anywhere in the world.
The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is a free, fun, and easy event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of bird populations. Participants are asked to count birds for as little as 15 minutes (or as long as they wish) on one or more days of the four-day event and report their sightings online at birdcount.org.
“Second Saturdays at the Water Resources Education Center are not only fun, they’re free! Each second Saturday of the month, from 1 to 3 p.m., kids and their families are invited to explore a different topic through hands-on activities, games, and stories. Create bird feeders and other crafts to welcome wildlife to your backyard! Learn about the amazing world of bubbles! Make a piece of art from reused materials! There’s always something new waiting at Second Saturdays!”
The Water Resources Education Center is located at 4600 SE Columbia Way, Vancouver, Washington. For more information call 360-487-7111.
