Audubon Sharon will be hosting a free program called "Feathers!" on Sunday, August 18th at 1:00pm at the Sharon Audubon Center. Feathers help birds fly but have many other functions too. During this workshop, great for adults and families with older children (8 years and up,) participants will have the opportunity to observe and identify various types of feathers and learn the many jobs they do for both birds and people. They will learn how the over-collection of feathers led to important protective laws for wild birds, do simple experiments with feathers, and have a feather or two to go home with. Pre-registration is recommended, but not necessary. For more information about Audubon Sharon, visit our facebook page, our website at www.sharon.audubon.org or call (860) 364-0520 to register.
