January 22, 2022 – Look To The Sky!
Although many of our native birds migrate before the first snow, we have plenty of colorful feathers to look for! Birding is the easiest when the leaves have fallen and the trees are bare. Come and learn all about the birds of Delaware, and ways you can find new species!

Emphasis is on properties that lead to the identification of rocks and minerals. Why is Geology important? Join us as we dig up information on the rock cycle and check out all of the ways to identify a rock.
