It’s All about the Birds at Outside in Nature Play Days

 

Bring the whole family to Los Flores Ranch Park (6245 Dominion Road) on Saturday, March 21st from 8:30 a.m. to noon and learn about the wonderful world of birds. The City of Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department is excited to offer this free Outside in Nature Play Day, featuring special guest Erin Koski from Luzonica, Birds of the World.

 

Ms. Koski will share her two decades of experience in working with various species of birds. She will have several birds on hand for participants to meet, and explain how a bird’s distinctive beak can provide information on the type of food it eats. Participants will also have an opportunity to work on a special craft activity that will aid in attracting birds to their gardens.

 

This is the first Outside in Nature Play Days for the 2015 season. Outside in Nature Play Days are offered every third Saturday of the Monday from March to November and are always free to attend.

 

Free round-trip transportation is available from the Abel Maldonado Community Youth Center and reservations are required. Please call 925-0951 ext. 260 to place a reservation. Directions to Los Flores Ranch Park can be found at http://www.cityofsantamaria.org/losfloresranchpark for those who prefer to drive.
