Five Things to Do This Weekend Feb 17-19: Fundraisers, Art and Birding

Welcome to "Five Things You Need to Know for the Weekend," a Dunwoody Patch column that sifts through the long list of events competing for your time to offer our pick of five things worth doing with your time off.


1. Help fund the Spruill Gallery, and buy some original art while you’re at it. The gallery’s current exhibition, The Goods: Selections from the artists studio, consists of primarily two dimensional work and small sculpture with sale prices not exceeding $500. The show features small works by big artists, the gallery said. The gallery’s hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.


2. Get a little fresh air with the family. The Dunwoody Nature Center will offer adults and children birding lessons at the Great Backyard Bird Count.  Bring the entire family to learn about species identification, the importance of the bird count, how to do basic bird observation, and how to correctly enter the tally into the Great Backyard Bird Count website. 

This event is free and open to the public. Classes are Saturday at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. and Monday at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
