Children of all ages learned about urban birds, looked for birds and helped local artists paint a large picture of birds.

The event provided the community with a weekend event for the family and helped neighborhood children learn more about the Lion’s Den, a youth center that is a safe place for youth to connect with other youth in a safe manner and learn about Jesus Christ.
