Learn more about your place in the world through explorations of nature and culture. Every second Saturday of the month, museum educators lead a program that combines a book reading, activities, and a chance to look more closely at the museum's collections. 

For this month’s program, participants will do activities to understand the needs of birds, how this changes seasonally, and how birds have adapted to living in various habitats. Horticulturists from Smithsonian Gardens will serve as special guest experts to help us learn about making our own backyards safe and welcoming habitats for birds and other wildlife, and why this is important. Visitors will also learn how to participate in the nationwide Backyard Bird Count in February where anyone can count birds they find in their backyard and share their information with scientists!

Location: This program is held in the Theater of the Q?rius Education Center, on the Ground Floor of the museum. Please enter through the Constitution Avenue entrance. Q?rius is located on the right as you enter the museum.

Accessibility: Access services such as American Sign Language interpretation, real-time captioning (CART), or audio description are available with two-weeks advanced notice. To request this service, please call (202) 633-5238 or e-mail
