KWEC to host “celebrating birds” program


HAYS, Kan. – The Kansas Wetlands Education Center will host a “celebrating birds” program – a free, one-hour program – from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 17, at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center.

The KWEC, 592 NE K-156 Highway, is at the southeast side of Cheyenne Bottoms Wildlife Area, northeast of Great Bend.

Celebrate birds by making an edible birdhouse feeder and participating in the Great Backyard Bird Count. Binoculars will be provided for those who don’t bring their own. Dress appropriately, as the bird count will take place outdoors. Donations for supplies are appreciated.

The program is designed for children ages 6 through 12. Children aged 7 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.

Pam Martin, KWEC and Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism education specialist, will lead the program.

To register, or for more information, call the KWEC at 1-877-243-9268. The registration deadline is Feb. 14. Additional information can be found at
