Make a Bird Feeder

"How strange that Nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude!" - Emily Dickinson

Enjoying nature is often something people often don't make time for. It seems like life often gets in the way of enjoying the world we live in. We may be too busy with our jobs, or studying for classes, or just distracted by the technology we have access to inside our homes. You can help your community reconnect with nature by making a bird feeder to hang outside your house or classroom. Your neighbors or classmates will enjoy seeing the birds that come to visit, and your feathered friends will enjoy the treat!

Step It Up

Make bird feeders to hang in your neighborhood or at your school or to give to your elderly neighbors or residents at a local nursing home. Many elderly people who are housebound or disabled don't have the opportunity to see much nature or wildlife. Hanging a birdfeeder by their windows will bring nature to them, even though they may not be able to go outside.

Keep It Simple

Sprinkle leftover bread crumbs on your sidewalk for birds to enjoy. Or take a trip to the nearest pond or lake and enjoy feeding the ducks.
