Weekend Update

Barn owlIt may not be warm, but it’s looking pretty clear for the weekend. What signs of spring will you see? Need help finding them? Join one of our weekend programs. Here’s a sampling of what we have to offer.

  • If you enjoy birds and birding, you won’t want to miss the Birders Meeting on Saturday in Waltham. The day is packed with great speakers, including Richard Crossley.
  • Join us for Hoot Happenings, a fun family day at the Museum of American Bird Art in Canton. There will be live owls on hand and owl demonstrations, owl games and crafts, and an owl scavenger hunt in the gallery. All proceeds from the event will benefit our Wild at Art Summer Camp.
  • Drumlin Farm is hosting a Naturalist Walk on Saturday afternoon that will focus on observing, exploring, and appreciating the world around us. While you’re here, be sure to say hi to the just-born lambs and two-week old goats.
  • How are northern trees adapted to life in the cold? What are the advantages of deciduous vs. coniferous adaptations? Tag along with naturalists Ian Ives and Molly Cornell for a Tree Identification walk through Ashumet Holly Wildlife Sanctuary in East Falmouth.
  • According to the calendar, spring is still a few days away; however the observant outdoor nature detective may have been seeing evidence for weeks. During Spring at Laughing Brook in Hampden, we’ll look for skunk cabbage poking its leaves from beneath the snow or soil, spring insects such as lightning bugs, and perhaps early frogs.

  • Birders and non-birders of all ages and skill levels are invited to join Habitat Intergenerational Program for HIP Morning Birding Walks around Habitat in Belmont. We will look for migrators, nest builders, and winter returnees.
