Let's Go Birding the Day After Thanksgiving! Enter the Fledgling Birding Challenge Friday, November 27, 2020
There is a lot of talk about creating new traditions this holiday weekend. Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society has a great idea on how to start a new and different tradition on November 27th, the day after that big Thanksgiving meal. It is the 'Fledgling Birding Challenge".
Through the holiday season, WCAS is offering a great way to help all of you with your holiday shopping. Who wouldn't be surprised and pleased to find a Mitchell's Homemade Ice Cream gift card among their presents. Kids, grandkids, friends and family are all potential recipients.
