Currituck County 4-H is hosting a wildlife program for youth ages 5-7 years old on January 26, 2024 from 9 a.m. to noon. Join us as we learn all about our native birds, and how we can help them through the winter months when their food sources may be low. Providing birds with feeding stations provides needed nutrition at a time when it is often scarce and has the added benefit of drawing birds to your yard for observation. Participants will make healthy snacks for the birds as well as snacks for themselves. Participating youth will expand their knowledge of birds and habitats, and how they can positively impact the environment.

Space is limited. The registration deadline is January 22, 2024, so reserve your child’s spot by going to: There is an $8 registration fee.
