MT. TREMPER – Catskill Mountain Kids: Birds! @ Catskill Interpretive Center

This week at Catskill Mountain Kids our topic is birds! Kids will learn about bird beaks, why we leave seed out for birds in the winter, and will have the opportunity to make their own feeders.

Catskill Mountain Kids is a year-round weekly daytime program series that celebrates the nature, history and culture of the Catskills. Each session will include some focused learning time, hands-on activities, and outdoor exploration. The program is geared for ages 4-7 but all are welcome. Please dress for the weather/being outside and the possibility of getting messy. The Winter session will run for 7 weeks and include programs on seasonal themes! More details will be added as the dates get closer. We’d love to see families come back every week, but you can also feel free to pick & choose the dates that work for you. Suggested donation: $2/child (max of $5/family), members free. Donations support the ongoing programs and operations of the Catskill Interpretive Center, a program of the Catskill Center nonprofit organization.
