Hands on Nature is a nonprofit organization who’s mission is to connect children to the natural world through educational hands-on experiences.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Fitchburg Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
After the morning Beginning Birding for Kids program at the Fitchburg Public Library, join North County Land Trust at Crocker Conservation Area where experienced birder and NCLT board member Wilson Acuna will take kids out to test out their newly learned bird calls. Wilson will lead this walk to look for birds, test out bird calls, and try out some binoculars out in the woods.
If you aren’t able to attend the morning session at the Fitchburg Public Library, that’s ok, we welcome you to join the bird walk at Crocker either way!
Please wear outdoor shoes and clothes and dress for the weather. If you have binoculars, please bring them, we will have some to share, too. Please register so we know to expect you.
