This Weekend: The Native Plant Festival is (also) for the Birds
Charley Winterbauer, President of the Cape Fear Audubon Society, joined us in the studio last week. The Audubon Society has a special program, "Discover the Wonder of Birds," a hands-on, interactive experience for youth and adults to learn about our feathered friends. The program travels to schools and community centers; this weekend, it will be a part of The Native Plant Festival at the New Hanover County Arboretum.
Students Amir Muhammed and Trinity Greiner experienced the Audubon's Bird program at school; they joined Charley in the studio to talk about what they learned.
The Plant Festival has a variety of activities, including a schedule of speakers, displays, a seed swap, horticulture experts to give advice-plus food and music. The festival runs 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday, October 17th at the Arboretum 6206 Oleander Drive.
