Whether an avid birder or not you will be captivated by the almost alive carvings of Bob Spear and the nature themed artwork of many others. Watch for local birds, take a carving class, go on educational walks through the woods, or my favorite activity is to take the bird call ID pen through the museum and scan the bar codes at many of the carvings to hear the birds calls echo around you. This museum is intimate and you may even run across the carver himself as his workshop is part of the experience.
