Virtual Little Sprout Explorers: Feathered Friends

Virtual Little Sprout Explorers: Feathered Friends

Nature Education Program

Friday, February 19
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Learn about bird beaks and feet adaptations, and how both relate to what birds eat! This program includes a tree cookie cardinal craft (pictured), and a small bird feeder to paint. The Feathered Friends program is recommended for ages 3-6 with some caregiver participation. Many of the same content will be covered in the Virtual Homeschool Science: Birds 101 class. We recommend signing up for the program that is most appropriate for your child’s age group.

This virtual program includes hands-on materials that are scheduled to be picked-up from the Garden on Friday, February 19, and a live 45-minute virtual component through Zoom on Tuesday, February 23 at 10AM and 1PM.

The ticketed date is the date/time you must come to Norfolk Botanical Garden to pick-up your virtual program supplies. The virtual program requires the use of Zoom, and is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, February 23. Information on where to pick-up your supplies and the Zoom link will be included in your “know before you go” email confirmation. If you have any questions about the supplies pick-up or the virtual Zoom class, please email
