About 100 people attended the inaugural Bird Friendly New Year's social at the Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary on Saturday, January 4, 2020. The spring-like weather brought a lot of first-time visitors to the sanctuary.
Activities included making bird-friendly resolutions for New Year's, a scavenger hunt, face painting, and making owl masks crafts. Two members of the Young Professionals Advisory Council led nature walks. Stuart Nelson held Mindful Meandering, a peaceful and meditative way to experience the trails. Carl Nooteboom conducted a walk that pointed out the stops on the self-guided trail tour.
A big hit for young and older was getting up close with Percy, the Screech Owl. Jeanette Lambert of the Education Team was there to answer any questions.
