Birds collecting sticks, making nests, raising young – if you stop to watch birds performing these behaviors, there is so much we can learn from these friends who fly. During this program, Laura VonMutius, Education Manager at the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey, shares the life lessons she’s gathered from watching and working with birds throughout the years. Watch to learn the lessons she’s been taught about resiliency, cooperation, and ways to have fun — all from the avian world!

This program is presented by Laura VonMutius and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
