The world around us is greening-up. The red Indian Warriors are thrusting out of the forest floor and millions of tiny California Gold flowers are carpeting some meadow areas. Spring is arriving!

This is a free event but donations are welcome for the presenter and the server.

Hayfork Cooperative will help us prepare for one of the delights of winter: attracting and occasionally feeding birds during winter-time, that time of year when they can use a meal the most.

Pat Frost, retired manager of the Trinity County Resource Conservation District, is a Biology instructor at Shasta College where he often teaches about birds.
