Learn about the Purple Martin or Natural Easter Egg Dyeing in Cape Girardeau Area

There are a couple of events upcoming in the Cape Girardeau, Missouri area at the Cape Nature Center that outdoor enthusiasts might enjoy and learn from.

First, on March 17th, take the opportunity to learn about the purple martin.  The program will last about an hour and will be conducted by a volunteer from the Purple Martin Conservation Association.  You will learn about these beautiful birds, as well as how to attract them and keep them around your property.

The day before Easter, the Cape Nature Center will offer some fun for kids and adults, when a program on dyeing Easter eggs using native plants and kitchen scraps is presented. Eggs, plants, and dye will be provided.

You can get information on either program by visiting http://mdc.mo.gov/CapeNatureCenter or by calling  (573)290-5218.
