Learn about birds with Felix Neck


Learn about birds at the West Tisbury library on Tuesday, July 16, at 10:30 am, with Felix Neck’s Ryan Ofsthun. According to a press release, birds are an incredible group of animals; find out what makes these creatures so spectacular. We will look at field guides, specimens, and even take a crack at identifying different species.

Ryan Ofsthun is the preschool director of the newly created Fern and Feather Preschool at Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary. Ofsthun has over a decade of experience teaching in preschools, both here in New England and in Texas. 

This program is open to all ages (children under 10 must be accompanied by a mature caregiver), and is free and open to the public.

This program is part of “Science Is Everywhere,” a STEM-focused (science, technology, engineering, and math) event series at the West Tisbury library created for children, tweens, and teens. This series is made possible by a “Science Is Everywhere” LSTA grant (Library Services and Technology Act) administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. These funds enable the West Tisbury library to provide opportunities for kids and families to participate in enjoyable and engaging programs, while creating positive experiences with topics in STEM.

For more information about this series and a complete list of “Science Is Everywhere” programs, please contact young adult librarian Laura Hearn at the West Tisbury library.
