Save The Date – Upcoming 2018 Programs

RC-upcoming-courses-2018-v6 (1)*NEW DATE Rescheduled to Saturday August 25th (8:30am – 10:30am)  Bat Box Building: A Hands-on Workshop Dan Meier – Senior Civil Engineer & Project Manager Duffield Associates, Inc. 

In this hands-on workshop, participants will construct a bat box as they learn about the importance of bats to our regional ecosystem. Bats are beneficial because they significantly reduce the number of insects in our backyards. Bat houses provide a safe home for bats and are educational and fun. This class is not appropriate for children under 10, anyone below age 16 should be accompanied by an adult.

Pricing: $45 per class

October 6, 2018 (9:00am – 11:00am)  Solitary Bee House: A Hands-on Workshop with Lowery Douglass, Assistant Horticulturist, Chanticleer

Gardeners can easily encourage solitary bees by providing artificial nest sites, sometimes called “bee houses”. In this hands-on workshop, participants will build their own bee house while learning about benefits of raising solitary bees. This class will bring attention to the benefits that solitary bees bring to our gardens. This class is not appropriate for children under 10, anyone below age 16 should be accompanied by an adult.

Pricing: $45 per class

October 20, 2018 (8:00am – 10:00am)  Beyond the Birdfeeder: What Birds Are Really Looking For in Your Yard with Steve Saffier – Audubon PA Program Manager,  Bird Friendly Communities

Class will begin with a walk to observe birds at Chanticleer and conclude with a presentation that reviews common birds of Pennsylvania, resource needs of these birds, migratory species and species of concern, and what to plant to attract specific birds. Participants will learn to identify key indicators that demonstrate whether a property is contributing to migratory and common bird populations and how they might improve their practices to do so.
