HANNIBAL, Mo. — Conservation makes Missouri a great place to watch birds. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will offer a free winter birdwatching workshop in Hannibal from 6 - 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 14.

This workshop is open to all ages and is designed for anyone who enjoys watching birds at feeders or in nature. The course will help bird watchers of all experience levels learn more about how to identify different species and attract more birds to backyard feeders.

“I love filling my feeders and watching birds in the winter,” said MDC Conservation Education Consultant Kathi Moore. “Birds provide such a colorful contrast to the bleak snowy days. It’s a beautiful way to connect with nature when it is cold outside. Setting up a feeding station is easy and affordable.”

The winter birdwatching workshop will take place at the Admiral Coontz Recreation Center, 301 Warren Barrett Drive, next to Clemens Field in historic downtown Hannibal.

Space is limited for this workshop, and participants must preregister by Dec. 13 at mdc-event-web.s3licensing.com/Event/EventDetails/163591, or by calling Kathi Moore at (573) 248-2530.
