Did you know that the wild turkey was Ben Franklin’s nominee for our national bird? Once driven nearly to extinction in much of the United States, the wild turkey has returned. Come learn about this large bird that represents our first American holiday, Thanksgiving. We’ll make a turkey craft and take a walk to catch, with luck, a glimpse of this elusive bird.
This outing will begin with a short introduction indoors, and then we'll go outside for a walk. General topics for each walk are listed below, but we'll stop and investigate anything that crosses our path.
