Sterling Nature Center Programs

Winter Birds and Bird Feeders,
Wednesday December 30 at 1pm

One of the most popular winter wildlife activities in the US is watching and feeding birds at a feeding station. This program will help you identify the birds at your feeder and show you ways to create simple feeders. Participants will create a peanut butter and seed feeder to take home with them. The Program is free and open to the public.

Owl Prowl
Saturday January 10 at 7pm
Nesting season has begun for the great horned owls. Join Naturalist Jim D’Angelo for an indoor introduction to the great-horned owl and other New York State owls. Then we will venture out on an owl prowl looking and listening for the nocturnal kings of the sky. Last year a pair of great-horned owls nested an old great blue heron nest within the rookery, so we know that they can be in the area. The program is free and open to the public; please remember to dress for the weather.

Tracks and Traces
Saturday January 16 at 1pm
What wildlife is moving about the Sterling Nature Center or your back yard? Winter is the perfect season to answer this question using the tracks and traces wildlife leaves behind to identify them. Join interpretive naturalist Jim D’Angelo for an indoor presentation followed by a hike in search of wildlife signs. The program is free and open to the public.
