·         Bird Band: Become an ornithologist and learn how to band (model) birds in order to identify them, track their movement, and learn their life history.

·         Make Bird Band Bracelets: Become a banded bird and create your own bird band bracelets while learning about the information that bird bands tell scientists.

·         Bird Hurdle: "Migrate” through an obstacle course, learning about the challenges that migrating birds face.

·         Match Bird Songs: Listen carefully to match birds with their songs.

·         ID Birds: Participants learn to use binoculars, then learn how to use field marks to identify birds. 

Passport to Culture is a program specifically designed for children and families to experience arts and culture outside the classroom and inside a world of imagination through performances, workshops and pure entertainment to foster the growth of visual and performing arts, science and cultural understanding in our community.
