Celebrate Father’s Day with Zoom presentation on fatherhood in birds

Join the Arboretum Society for our First Thursday Nature Supper Club at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 3, as the society celebrates Father’s Day.

You provide your own stay-at-home supper, and the society provides the nature as local naturalist Stephen Lyn Bales will entertain and teach us via Zoom about fatherhood in birds.

Are mourning doves good fathers? Are bluebirds?
