|Birdwatchers will enjoy Bird Chat about winter feeding on Feb. 3|
During this year's National Birdfeeding Month in February, learn how to more effectively feed our feathered friends during a new program being presented in early February by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
This program is called Bird Chat - Winter Feeding and is the first of three stand-alone programs which will be presented this winter and early spring by the staff of The Wild Bird House in downtown Overland Park. Participants in this session will learn what high-calorie foods can be offered during the cold weather, as well as the importance of participating in The National Audubon Society's Great Backyard Bird Count.
To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 plus and then under enrichment & special interests. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “birdwatching.”
Bird Chat - Winter Feeding will take place beginning at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 3, at the Matt Ross Community Center, 8101 Marty St., Overland Park. The cost for one 90-minute sessions is $7 per person for Johnson County residents or $8 per person for nonresidents. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online at www.jcprd.com, click on the green “Register for Activities” button and complete a barcode search for 31833.

While JCPRD’s 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the 50 Plus Department at (913) 826-3030 for space availability.
