Did you know that Benjamin Franklin wanted the national bird to be a wild turkey rather than a bald eagle?  He did!  Ben voted for the turkey, but was outvoted, so our national bird is the regal bald eagle!  You might eat turkey at Thanksgiving, but did you know that lots of turkeys live in the wild.  In fact, they're commonly called wild turkeys and live all over the United States, including here at Hagerman NWR.  In our Talkin' Turkey class, the youth will discover what they real lives of wild turkeys are like.  They'll learn about hens, toms, caruncles, wattles, and snoods.  Children will even learn how to do the turkey strut and learn the turkey call!  Each child will make a terrific turkey craft to take home and have fun participating in turkey games and activities.  Come join us on November 18 for a free class to learn all about our resident wild turkeys!  For ages 5-10.  Registration Required.
