Family activity – Finding food in the winter

Family activity- Finding food in the winter

For birds, the hardest part of winter is not the cold but the lack of food. Some species have solved this problem by migrating south, but those that stay had to find other ways. Come join one of Le Nichoir’s biologists for a walk in the Clarke Sydenham nature reserve for a series of fun activities for all ages to learn about how birds survive the cold season.

Note that part of the activity will be held outdoor, dress according to the weather. Bring your snowshoes!

To make sure everyone can enjoy this activity, there is no fixed cost for this activity; you donate what you can.
