CCHS and Tanglewood Nature Center and Museum are partnering to present a hat making program and workshop that combines history and nature. In the late 1800s, it was fashionable to wear hats piled with feathers and taxidermy birds. However, Audubon Societies began forming to end the killing of birds for fashion. Learn about the controversy and make your own fancy 19th century hat (with no dead birds). Meet some of Tanglewood’s birds and learn more about conservation efforts.
