Workshop to help welcome hummingbirds back to Doylestown

March 27, 2017 by  

The warmer weather is on the way for Doylestown, and that means the hummingbirds will be returning from their winter homes for another year. The public is invited to attend an event where they will learn how to create their very own feeders for these tiny but tough birds.

The feeding stations will be made by upcycling existing materials. They will attract the birds to the garden and allow them to meet their need for a constant supply of high-energy food. In addition to providing instruction in how to craft the station, the facilitators will also be able to provide advice about how to attract hummingbirds and other wildlife into the garden through the choice of plants, providing fresh water, shelter and other measures.

The cost to participate in the session, which will be held in the Peace Valley Nature Center located at 170 North Chapman Road in Doylestown, has been set at $6 each. Anyone who would like to take part has been asked to register ahead of time, and a newsletter printing service will be able to create community bulletins that keep the public up to date on what is going on in the local area.

The Make a Hummingbird Feeder workshop will be held on April 8. Anyone who would like to register or find out more is asked to visit the host’s website.
