New Bird Activity Kit was put together with the help of the Copper Country Audubon Club.
New Bird Activity Kit was put together with the help of the Copper Country Audubon Club. "The Center created the bird activity kit last spring," she said. Dana Richter, president of the 200-member club, said the club provided $200 to create the kit, which also contains toy stuffed birds to help with identification, children's books, and actual bird wings. During his presentation on bird identification,

Richter told the students all that's necessary to become a bird watcher is to see a bird, then look it up in a book to name it.
"Anybody can be a bird watcher," he said.
Chadde said the bird identification kit will be stored at the CCISD building, and be let out on loan to schools as needed. The bird activity kit joins about 10 others the Center has, including activity kits for rocks, trees, Great Lakes shipping and owls, Chadde said, and they seem to be popular with students.
