Thank you to Leslie Holeman-Umali for organizing a wonderful Science Night for our Birch Lane Families. We had exciting presenters and all of the students were engaged and enjoying themselves.

Garden News:

Be a citizen scientist by participating in the Great Backyard Bird Count at Birch Lane Sunday 2/19 from 9am-11am! We will learn how to identify some common birds and then find a spot to sit and see how many we can spot. Sightings will then be recorded to help scientists learn more about birds and help protect them.

We will also have a few activities to do, including making pinecone bird feeders to hang out in your own back yard.
