BIRD WATCH AT PINE HOLLOW ARBORETUM SEPTEMBER 7, 2013
The Pine Hollow Arboretum is happy to announce that we have partnered up with the Audubon Society of the Capital Region for our first bird watch which will take place on Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013 @ 9:00 a.m. at the Visitor Center. Craig Thompson, Audubon member and recently retired director of Five Rivers Environmental Education Center will lead the walk around the arboretum and will teach us techniques about finding and identifying birds. He will also answer questions you may have about attracting birds to your own yard. Craig recommends bringing along a notebook and pencil to jot down notes and identifiable bird features so you can look them up in a bird book afterwards. This event is free and open to the public. Please bring binoculars if you have them but if you don't they have a some to share. Also, make sure to wear long, comfortable pants and closed toe shoes. We will have some breakfast treats and beverages as well. **Please note, if there is a steady rain on the morning of the event we will have to reschedule.**
Also, during the month of September, the Bethlehem Public Library will be showing artwork created by our very own members and friends who have been artistically inspired by their visits to the arboretum. There will be over 30 works of art displayed including photographs, oil and acrylic paintings and drawings. It is something you will not want to miss! The work will be on display starting Tuesday, September 3, 2013 during library hours.
We hope to see you soon and thank you for your continued supportrday, Sept. 7 @ 9:00 a.m. at the Visitor Center. Craig Thompson, Audubon member and recently retired director of Five Rivers Environmental Education Center will lead the Craig recommends bringrt
