Christmas for the Birds

Event Description

Join Town Creek Indian Mound in easing Winter’s strain on our feathered friends. Make an edible “orni-ment” by creating pine cone bird feeders with suet & bird seed. In much of North America, winter is a difficult time for birds. Days are often windy and cold; nights are long and even colder. The lush, berry-laden vegetation of summer and fall has withered or been consumed, and most insects have died or become dormant. There is no cost for this activity.

Visitors may also make a clay ornament using the same designs the Pee Dee Culture impressed into their pottery for $3.00 each. Clay ornaments can then be painted and used as festive holiday keepsakes.
