This sounds like so much fun!

The National Trout Center in Preston is holding a birding for kids event Saturday July 29 starting at 10 a.m.  NTC Program Director, Kelsey Hoffmann, will head the program.  Start the morning making a pair of binoculars.  Take your binoculars and go for a birding walk.  You'll even receive a bird poster to take home with you!  What a great way to learn all about birds that make their home in our area.  I love birds and have several feeders in my yard.  Makes me wish I was a kid again so I could take advantage of this program!  Space is limited so it's advised that you register ahead of time by calling the National Trout Center at 507 765 2452 or email
