Kids learn about birds and butterflies at Nature Camp

| July 15, 2014

COSHOCTON – Clary Gardens gave local kids the opportunity to explore nature on Tuesday, July 15 during Kids Nature Camp. At the garden, kids explored the world of birds and made bird feeders out of a toilet paper roll, peanut butter, and birdseed. The kids took home one of their bird feeders and hung the other at Clary Gardens for the birds. The group also took a bird-watching hike of Clary Gardens where they saw cardinals, robins, and a vulture, and even some other friendly animals like butterflies and frogs. Don Norman, a local birder, also came and showed the kids some pictures and books and told them all about the birds they can find daily in their own back yard. “The purpose of the camp is to learn something new about nature and to get outside and learn about birds,” said Chris Campbell, event coordinator at Clary Gardens. The camp will continue on Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon with a butterfly day where the older kids in Project Butterfly Wings will teach the younger kids all about butterflies.
