Goldfinches, woodpeckers, dark-eyed juncos, blue jays and robins are just a few of the local bird species that inhabit Wave Hill in winter. Using seeds, nuts and pinecones, make edible hangings for our feathered friends to enjoy. Then, create a bird house using natural and upcycled materials. Families will be invited to contribute their edible ornaments to the Wildlife Trees on display in front of the Perkins Visitor Center. Registration not required. The program is now indoors in the Kerlin Learning Center located on the ground floor of Wave Hill House. Please note the following important COVID-related information to ensure everyone?s safety: Approximately nine families will be able to participate at a time, based on the time each family arrives. If capacity is full when you arrive, you will be provided with a "come back" card so you will have first entry for the next session. Each family will receive its own set of materials and cleaning will happen in between seating participants. Unvaccinated visitors are encouraged to wear a mask inside. Wave Hill House is accessible to all our visitors. The building is located along a paved route with moderate changes in grade.
