Springtime if when birds at Tule Ponds start to make nests and produce eggs for the next generation. Tule Ponds has about 100 different species of birds that live or visit during the year.  Tule Ponds is alive with birds during the spring.  Students had to describe 5 different birds and earned prizes for each type of bird they identified. 

Approximately 300 people came to see Tule Ponds at Tyson Lagoon.   Not only did families learn about the birds, but they also learned about the habitat provided by this unique wetlands.  The classroom had displays on butterflies and moths that were in various stages.  There were puzzles for the little ones and headbands, so children could become a different type of bird.  Parents were pleased by the array of activities and appreciated this type of format.  Some families even had a picnic in nature.  Most families stayed an average of 2 hours to enjoy a pleasant day at Tule Ponds.
