World Migratory Bird at Cape Perpetua Visitor Center

At Cape Perpetua Visitor Center on June 16, 2018th at 12 pm til 4 pm. Will host five activities:

-Build your own Snowy Plover: Visitors were able to build their own snowy plover chicks with cottonballs, toohtpicks, glue, and googly eyes. We discussed snowy plovers info.

-Coloring Station: Catered to a younger audience, this station had coloring pencils, crayons, markers, and bird coloring pages. It was a way to teach children about birds and avian conservation

-Bird window collision station: The station was meant to inform our visitors on birds colliding with windows and how damaging it is to bird population. We informed them of actions they can use to mitigate the situation, such as drawing and cutting out bird silhouettes to stick on windows or examples of patterns that can be drawn on windows. 

-Bird Beak Adaptation table: We utilized bird skull models to emphesize the variation in beaks and what they can tell you about a bird's diet, and we emphazied caring for birds. 

-Field Ranger led nature hikes: Two field rangers led short walks into a forest trail and talked about old growth forests and how they're important to a threatened bird, the Marbled Murrelet

It was a great day in which we got 158 visitors
