For the Birds: A Winter School Break Program

Tuesday, February 21, 1:30-3:30pm

Birding and bird care are year-round activities at the Voelker Orth Museum. Join us for a family-friendly, informative, and hands-on afternoon dedicated to our feathered friends.

Learn how to use binoculars and observe birds in the wild. Create a bird journal to track your observations throughout the year. With our friends from the Queens Bird Club, discover resources to help identify New York area birds and great places to observe them. Urban wild birds can use a little TLC in the winter so we'll make decorative bird feeders you can place near home.

Light refreshments served. Admission $4/ $10 for Family. Children under 3, admitted free.

Virtual Activities

For anyone who cannot join us at the Museum we offer virtual activities for kids and families to explore on their own. Each of these are offered free and readily done with simple materials.
