|The Bird Feeder Hat, designed to be quirky, gives you an opportunity to wear a bird feeder on your head in order to begin experiencing a deeper kinship with a wild creature up close. Come to The Bird Feeder Hat events to feel a song sparrow or gold finch hopping and feeding on your hat, meet other species, learn to create sustainable interspecies relationships with members of your watershed, pinpoint your watershed on a world map and add your name to the growing record of watershed-aware citizens.
When can you try on a Bird Feeder Hat? You have six weekend opportunities in northern coastal California. Visit this Web site often to learn more about our educational program and get updates on the events.
As the nonprofit sponsor of The Bird Feeder Hat events, Friends Of The Ten Mile (FOTTM) promotes ways to live and work that include the well-being of animals, plants and systems of one's watershed.
We recognize that environmental impacts require long-term solutions. The Bird Feeder Hat events initiate one of the most basic solutions. They encourage the unfolding of awareness necessary to move society toward respectful relationships between humans and other living things. And they encourage citizens to become advocates for healthy systems within their own watersheds. Our ultimate vision is that watershed by watershed we begin to heal, and then sustain, the health of our biosphere.
Friends Of The Ten Mile, a chapter of Redwood Coast Watershed Alliance, is a group of people who live in the Ten Mile River Watershed. We monitor the health of our watershed, conduct public environmental education projects and advocate for clean water, sustainable forests and engaged citizens everywhere.
