Behind Scenes Zoo Tour MACAW Seminar Where We Meet Hands on Learning
Dear Fellow Bird Lover,
Learning the latest news on avian diseases, household hazards, avian nutrition, or avian behavior are just a few of the things you will do at a MACAW meeting. And as you learn more about the special qualities and talents of your birds, you will come to understand and appreciate them even more than you do today. When you learn how to avoid household hazards, or learn how to recognize when your bird is sick, or which foods are the best to give your bird and which make them sick, you will avoid needless heartache and suffering and will also save money by avoiding expensive vet bills.
Our wish here at MACAW is to offer you this opportunity to learn as we continuously educate ourselves on our birds. We also believe in having fun and helping other avian causes along the way -- through our seminars, auctions, picnics and behind the scenes special tours. Please join us for an hour for an afternoon of fun learning, making new friends and seeing for yourself what MACAW is all about. Our meetings are always open and free to the public. You might just learn that you are among friends with a similar interest --- birds!
Thanks for stopping by.
