All Ages Summer Learning: Bear Smart Bird Feeder Exchange
June 19, 2021 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Bears are fond of bird feeders, and bird feeders can create nuisance bears. Sometimes, nuisance bears end up dead.That’s the line of thinking that led to Bear Smart Durango’s Bird Feeder Exchange Program. On Saturday, June 19th from 9am-1pm, you can bring your old bird feeder to the Pine River Library Park and exchange it for a complete kit (basket, soil, wildflower seed) for making a hanging flower basket.The flowers in the baskets are designed to attract hummingbirds but not bears, said Bryan Peterson, founder and director of Bear Smart Durango, which advocates for solutions to help bears and people co-exist. Feed birds, not bears!
