The Cazenovia Public Library will partner with the Izaak Walton League to present the Young Naturalists program series for children ages seven and older. The engaging, hands-on programs are designed to get young people interested in science and connected to conservation and outdoor recreation. Participants will become citizen scientists and learn about local ecology through activities, art projects, and books. The next session, titled “Winter Birds,” will be held Monday, January 21 at 4:30 pm in the Community Room.
The Izaak Walton League was founded in 1922 by 54 avid anglers dedicated to conserving outdoor America for future generations. The environmental organization is named after Izaak Walton, the 17th century author of The Compleat Angler—a classic book about the art and spirit of fishing. The League is one of the first conservation organizations to set forth an aggressive course of action to defend wild America by changing public policy.
During the program, participants will learn about how birds survive in the cold Central New York winters and make a bird feeder to take home. Registration is requested. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Cazenovia Public Library.
