Wild Wednesdays Coppell
WHAT DO THE BIRDS EAT?
Wednesday July 12th 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
What foods can you place in your yard to feed birds? Learn how different types of foods attract different birds, as well as the importance of water and cover habitat. Bring your empty milk jugs or water/soda bottles with you and build a bird feeder using these upcycled milk jugs and water/soda bottles. You can take your feeders home or donate them to be placed behind the Coppell Nature Park bird watching wall.
Wednesday July 19th 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
Why do animals build homes? What materials do they use? Find the answer to these questions and many more through hands-on experience and discussion at “Animal Architects!” Participants will investigate different types of animal homes and be invited to “build” their own using natural supplies, such as twigs, leaves, twine, acorns and more.
THE “LITTLE WORLD”
Wednesday July 26th 10:30 am – 12:00 PM
Take a small-scale look at the world around you! Use microscopes to look at plant cells, insect parts and much more. We will also make an onion tissue slide.
