Saturday, May 9, Los Alamos Team 4-H will be hosting a Backyard Poultry Workshop and Tour.
The Workshop starts at 10 a.m. in the Meeting Rooms at Mesa Public Library. Speakers will include a cooperative extension agent to talk about raising backyard chickens, a representative from Los Alamos County to talk about the rules for keeping backyard chickens, and Pet Pangea to talk about supplies.
At 11:30 a.m., maps will be handed out by Los Alamos Team 4-H in the Mesa Public Library lobby showing which backyards and stable lots will have hosts for the public to tour their poultry setups. Attendance at the workshop is not required to participate in the tour. Tours will be hosted 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and are self-directed.
There are five sites in Los Alamos and one site in White Rock. To add a flock to the tour, email Dianne Wilburn at email@example.com. Los Alamos Team 4-H will give volunteers a recycled Chicken Feed Tote Bag as a thank you gift.
The workshop and tours are free. Each year, Los Alamos Team 4-H works on a community service project and this is its event for 2015
