Verona is located on one of the world’s great bird migration routes and if you want to get a better understanding of what’s going on in the skies overhead now, consider going to the Newark Museum next Saturday.
On October 9, from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. the museum will be presenting Skies Alive & Family Activities. The Museum’s Explorers—trained high school student educators—will lead visitors through hands-on activities and demonstrations that are all about birds.
You and your kids will be able to learn the basic use of binoculars and bird identification skills, make a bird feeder and other crafts, and learn about the challenges bird face during migration. There’s also going to be an interactive program that looks at how bird beaks adapted to each bird’s specific diet and a dissection of owl pellets.
