diy hummingbird feeder

Join us to learn more about hummingbirds and create your own hummingbird feeder made from materials found right in your home! Please bring a bottle (glass is preferred, but plastic will work as well) and a shallow plastic container with a closable lid. We will also have materials to create pinecone bird feeder that may be better suited for children.
Have extra bottles and plastic containers that you are looking to donate? Great! Please bring them to share with other participants.
