Winter Break Activities: help kids learn about winter birdfeeding at SEEDS

See also

The SEEDS - Blacksburg Nature Center has planned a program on winter bird feeding for this Friday's weekly "Playdate Friday" theme. Playdate Friday is free and takes place from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m..

Parents and kids of all ages are invited to come and learn how humans can give back to nature by sharing the bounty of harvest with hungry winter animals, especially birds.

Participants will learn which songbirds prefer which types of seeds, then make their own custom birdseed mixture, a hanging birdfeeder ornament for an outside tree, and even a dried fruit and popcorn garland.

As always, there will be theme-related books to read, and tons of hands on games and activities to play inside and outside.

The SEEDS - Blacksburg Nature Center is located at 107 Wharton Street SE in Blacksburg. (See map adjacent.)

Since 1995, SEEDS (Seek Education, Explore, DiScover – SEEDS®) has inspired kids’ love for learning and has been growing future leaders through outdoor nature education, discovery learning, and civic awareness.

SEEDS – Blacksburg Nature Center is a 501(c)(3) charitable not-for-profit youth education organization that operates based solely on citizens' tax-deductible donations as well as some grants, with support from contributing partners, the Town of Blacksburg Department of Parks and Recreation and the Virginia Tech Department of Biological Sciences Outreach Program.
