A virtual outdoor skills academy class about winter bird feeding will take place on Saturday, Jan. 22 from 9 a.m. to noon.  

Are you new to feeding backyard birds and want to learn more? 

Feeding birds is easy to do with a little knowledge – learn which birds are likely to visit your backyard and which feeds and feeders they prefer.

This class will also introduce some free birding resources and apps, cover how to clean your feeder and explore ways to get involved in community science projects such as the Backyard Bird Count.

Interpretive naturalists Shana Ramsey of the Wolf Lake State Fish Hatchery Visitor Center, Karen Gourlay of the State Park Explorer Guide Program and Elizabeth Tillman of the Gillette Sand Dune Visitor Center in P.J. Hoffmaster State Park will teach the class.

Cost is $15 for this virtual experience.

To register, go to Michigan.gov/DNRLicenses and click on the “Purchase a license” button. Sign in (using either a username and password or your ID and birthdate), and find the class under the Outdoor Skills Academy tab.

For more information, contact the Gillette Visitor Center at 231-798-3573 or email [email protected].
