Birds & Beer is back for 2021!

We are being COVID-conscious. This summer, Birds & Beer will take place in locations that have an outdoor area so we can do the program exclusively outdoors with social distancing in place. Be sure to dress for the weather!

Socialize with other nature enthusiasts over snacks and beverages, and enjoy an engaging presentation from a local expert in a happy-hour atmosphere. Each Birds and Beer program features a different presenter at a different location, so you’re sure to learn something new each time!

Each ticket includes a free drink, complimentary snacks, and an informative presentation. All proceeds help fund programs at Hunt Hill. To register for a Birds and Beer program, click the “Register Here” button below or call 715-635-6543.
