Virtual Holiday Bird Camp

During Bird Camp, participants receive interactive packages and engage in face-to-face virtual sessions. We welcome participants from outside the United States, but please be aware that you would be responsible for additional costs of shipping, and the delivery time would be longer.

Holiday Camp Schedule:
Week 1 (12/1/20 to 12/4/20): Decorate a tree for the birds with a garland of popcorn and cranberries. Learn about what birds eat in winter to survive and identify some of those species. We send all the goodies, along with a needle and thread!
Week 2 (12/7/20 to 12/11/20): Why are Northern Cardinals red and Blue Jays blue? We will explore feather color with a science experiment and then make our own colorful bird decoration.
Week 3 (12/14/20 to 12/18/20): Use your bird cookie cutter to make some holiday treats. Not all birds stick around for the winter. Let’s follow some of the species that leave and see where they go!
