Woodcock Nature Center is encouraging people to help the feathered and small furry animals who live near them stay fed and warm during these winter months by giving them a source of food and nesting materials.

The Wreaths for Wildlife program takes place Friday, Jan. 3, from 4 to 5 p.m. or 5 to 6 p.m., at the nature center at 56 Deer Run Road.

Participants may decorate a plain balsam wreath with natural, safe, animal-friendly materials such as dried apple and orange slices, pine cones, birdseed and nesting materials such as straw and Spanish moss.

The cost is $15 per wreath. Registration required at woodcocknaturecenter.org. Select your session when registering.

This event is a partnership with the Norwalk River Watershed Association.
