Two upcoming events take place in the next few weeks at the Howard County Conservancy. Both of them are popular topics and are worth checking out.
The first one is this Saturday, the 10th. With winter coming, our winged friends need a little help being fed. A “wonder walK” from 10-12 Saturday morning will focus on how to make simple items to keep your neighborhood birds, and probably also the squirrels, happy. There will be a short presentation outside if the weather cooperates, or inside, if not, focusing on the birds that generally stay in Howard County in the winter, and what they like to eat.
There will also be the opportunity for attendees to make at least one “menu item” to take home or to hang out on the conservancy grounds, for the birds to enjoy. Plus, learn some tips to keep birds coming to your house all winter, including attracting bluebirds. The wonder walks are always free.
Another amazing presentation by the popular nature photographer, George Grall. NOV 16 – Fri. 7 pm – Revisiting Spring Pools: The Amphibian Awakening and More. His programs have completely sold out in the past, as his photography is awesome. Featured often in National Geographic, he has been writing articles and providing photos to the Society since 1990. Newsweek, Smithsonian, Life, Nature Conservancy, Audubon, International Wildlife, National Wildlife, GEO, Le Figaro, and a host of other international publications have also honored his work.
The George Grall program is one of those “don’t miss” evenings. Put it on your calendar. The admission is $10 in advance and $12 at the door, if there is any space left. Children under 8 are free.
