The Springfield Art Museum is teaming up with the Springfield Conservation Nature Center to host a series of activities for bird lovers. KSMU’s Jennifer Davidson has details.

Art and nature have intertwined for millennia, and this series of events continues in that tradition. The artwork of Missouri bird artist David Plank is on exhibit at the museum.

If you’re longing for some winged company in your backyard, you can attend the Tuesday, March 26 activity on attracting birds. The event on Tuesday, April 9, will teach you how to identify common birds by their songs.

And on Tuesday, May 21, you can learn how birds construct their nests. Those events are all free. The Springfield Art Museum is located at 1111 W. Brookside, next to the Phelps Grove Park in Central Springfield.

About 60 of Plank’s drawings and watercolors from the Museum's permanent collection will be on view in addition to 13 more recent watercolors on loan from the artist.

For more information on those events, you can contact the Art Museum at 837-5700.
