Celebrate Earth Day with John Burroughs at Woodchuck Lodge and help us raise funds to pay for the pruning of the apple orchard.

This event will take place Sunday April 22nd at 1pm at Woodchuck Lodge, Burroughs Memorial Road, Roxbury, NY 12474. (In bad weather, the event will be held at The Catskill Center in Arkville.)

Meet veteran birder Joe Siclare of the Denver Valley who will offer a class called “How To Get Started in the Birding Hobby: A Door to the Natural World”.

In this class, learn how to: 

– attract and identify eastern bluebirds

– maintain and monitor bluebird nesting boxes in John Burroughs’ orchard

– pick a good site for the box

– troubleshoot for predators and problems

– identify and discourage competitive species.

Go home with your very own locally crafted Peterson bluebird nesting box (pictured above) in local wood compliments of ONCBOCES.

This is a family friendly event. All are welcome.

Family registration fee: $30. One nesting box per family for the first 20 registrants. To RSVP, contact PATTI RUDGE @ (845)254-4126. Please make checks payable to Woodchuck Lodge Inc.
