Family Program Focuses on Winter Ecology

BRIGHTON, Colo. – Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory invites families to a program on winter ecology at A Novel’s Story Bookshop and Fine Tea Empourium in downtown Brighton.


                The “Why Turtles Don’t Fly South” family program will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. on Jan. 19 at the bookshop in Brighton, located at 17 N. Main St. This program will teach participants of all ages how animals, including humans, are able to survive the often harsh conditions of winter.

                Participants will learn hibernation, migration and other aspects of winter ecology through hands-on activities, including experiments about insulation. They will learn how birds survive the winter and help our feathered friends by constructing their own backyard bird feeders.

                There is no cost for this program, but a $5 donation per family is suggested. Space is limited. Families can pre-register by contacting Community Education Coordinator Tyler Edmondson at 303-659-4348 ext. 15 or, or by signing up at A Novel’s Story Bookshop and Fine Tea Empourium. 

Founded in 1988, Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory is a Colorado-based nonprofit that works to conserve birds and their habitat from Montana to Mexico through science, education and stewardship.
