Osborne Holiday Walk | Dec. 2

“Migration: Should I Stay or Should I Go?”

December 2nd 6-8pm

Osborne Nature Center

Come winter, some birds leave, others arrive, some stay put, and some just can’t decide. For this year’s holiday walk, participants will tag along with a few actors playing as migratory – or not so migratory – birds to learn about why, or if, they’ll head south this year.

Walks will start every 20 minutes and last approximately 30 minutes. Activities will take place outdoors, so dress for the weather, before coming inside to enjoy a performance by the Elkader Central Madrigal Choir. This fun, family-friendly event is free, but a donation of bird feed such as thistle and black oil sunflower seeds is requested.

Reservations are required. Please call 563-245-1516.

The Osborne Center is located on Highway 13, ten miles north of Strawberry Point or five miles south of Elkader. The nature center winter hours are from 8:00am to 4:00pm, Monday-Friday.
