Barr Lake State Park will celebrate National Bird Feeding Month on Sunday, Feb. 26, with a program at 1 p.m. on “Cooking for Birds.” The national event was created by the National Bird Feeding Society to advance and publicize the wild bird feeding and watching hobby. February is one of the most difficult months for wild birds.
In February, individuals are encouraged to provide food, water and shelter to help birds survive as part of National Bird Feeding Month. At the Barr Lake Nature Center on Feb. 26, staff will demonstrate and create many different types of bird feeders. Visitors can also learn to make a bird feeder cup cake. After the cooking demonstration, join Barr Lake experts on a stroll around the Niedrach trail to look for the many birds of Barr Lake.
Support the Friends of Barr Lake and purchase a starter set bird feeder for only a $5.00 donation. All donations help to support the many wonderful education programs at the park.
The programs are free, but all vehicles entering the park must purchase a $7 daily pass or display a valid annual pass.
Barr Lake State Park, located less than 25 miles from downtown Denver, provides a sanctuary for both wildlife and humans. It is a unique place to pause and reconnect with nature. Recreation at Barr Lake State Park takes forms that harmonize with nature. Visitors boat, fish, hike, bicycle, horseback ride, study nature, bird watch and, in winter’s snows, cross-country ski.
