Winter Nature Tots starts in January!

Hey ho, the winter winds blow! The snow piles up and the nature tots pile in! Winter Nature TOTS will begin January 22nd and run through February 19th. That is 5 consecutive Wednesdays of nature exploration for little ones and their adults! This child centered, hands-on program gives the adult caregivers a weekly breath of fresh air too! We will begin at 12:30 and spend an hour or so investigating the wonders of winter and end with a snack and some warm cocoa. What a way to start your winter afternoons. If you have family or friends with children under 6 years old, think about joining us for an hour of nature exploration and learning at Bull’s Run. The program is free with your 2014 family membership of $25 or you can pay $5 per session. The membership entitles you to free Spring and Autumn Nature TOTS, too! For more information, contact Barb at 513-422-5063 or naturalist@bullsrun.org.

Annual Christmas Bird Count

Saturday, December 22, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. — The Christmas Bird Count will be held at Bull’s Run Nature Sanctuary and Arboretum. New bird watchers are welcome to join seasoned birders as they hike the arboretum trails recording the winter visitors to the woods. The hike usually lasts an hour, sometimes a little longer if the feathered friends and weather are cooperating. Expect to see the species commonly observed over the past thirty-plus years: the cardinals, chickadees, nuthatches, sparrows, and woodpeckers. With quiet patience, you may be fortunate enough to glimpse a brown creeper or a yellow-bellied sapsucker that we spotted last year. Dress for the weather, bring a bird identification book and binoculars if you have them (but not required), and join us for a closer look at the birds at Bull’s Run. We will post the results of the walk on the website and Facebook page. We would enjoy comments on what you are seeing in your yard.
