Migration has begun for our feathered friends who fly south. Those who stay in Minnesota need a place to feed. Make a wooden hanging birdfeeder (they make great gifts!) complete with birdseed.

November 10 $3/person, free for members + $10 per feeder
Limit 20 bird feeders. Register each person, but add the bird feeder fee for each feeder to be built.
