Hey there, young nature lovers! Get ready for an awesome adventure celebrating the amazing birds of St. Martin at Amuseum Naturalis in French Quarter this Saturday, October 14, from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon. It’s free for everyone to come learn more about the birds that travel to and from our island every year.
The museum is launching two new bird colouring books: “Soualiga Birds” and “Birds Around Me.” You can get these books for free, but there’s a limited supply, so come early. You can sit down and colour in the books at the special colouring station!
Fun and games
Join us at Amuseum Naturalis for tons of bird-themed fun in the museum’s beautiful gardens. Play exciting bird games, learn all about how scientists track birds, and explore the incredible museum exhibits and its outdoor areas.
Be part of the adventure with bird-themed games like Bird Bingo and the Bird Habitat Scavenger Hunt. These games are all about our local birds and nature, and they’re great for families and kids in the Amuseum’s gardens.
About the books
Jenn Yerkes, the President of Les Fruits de Mer, is really excited about these books. “Soualiga Birds” helps you learn the names of St. Martin birds in English, French, Spanish, and Dutch. “Birds Around Me” is like a journal where you can write down your own bird observations and create your own bird drawings.
In case you can’t make it to the Bird Festival, you can get the books on amazon.com or as free downloads at http://lesfruitsdemer.com
Bird tracking music
Discover the fascinating world of migratory birds with the museum’s special station that uses antennas to track birds that wear tiny transmitters. It’s one of the first stations like this in the Caribbean!
