Make your own bird feeder

During the winter, especially with the storm, we’ve all been worried about the birds. One way you can help is to make sure they have plenty of food! That’s why Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Stirley Farm are excited to be running some Bird Feeder Making workshops this spring 2022 half term. There are different feeders you can make and the event is fun for all ages.

Adults £5, Children £3, Family Ticket (2 Adults and 2 Children) £13.

Monday 21st to Friday 25th February 2022 from 10am to 1pm at Stirley Community Farm, near Hall Bower, Huddersfield HD4 6RP
