Young Birder’s Club to meet

TROY — The Young Birder’s Club will meet from 9-11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 29 at Brukner Nature Center for this month’s meeting.

Brukner Nature Center has many species of birds that visit at different points of the year to take advantage of the various resources the land provides them. This month participants will explore through the eyes of a bird in search of food, water, and shelter, which are essential for survival.

Participants will also discuss what will helps to attract birds and other animals to back yards. Geared for students in grades sixth through 12th with an interest in birding, membership in the YBC is $10 per year, plus high quality binoculars and field guides are provided for meetings and field trips.
