[DNR] Indiana Dunes State Park will celebrate Bird Day, May 10
Start Date: 5/10/2014Start Time: 9:30 AM
End Date: 5/10/2014
Entry Description
Indiana Dunes State Park will celebrate International Migratory Bird Day on May 10 with an assortment of bird-related activities.

The day begins with a bird walk at 9:30 a.m. in search of warblers, vireos and other neo-tropical migrants that have arrived in the dunes. The walk starts at the nature center.

From 1:30 to 4 p.m., park staff and volunteers will offer an “Afternoon for the Birds” with bird activities, crafts and bird banding at the nature center. Visitors may visit for all or part of the afternoon.

The day will conclude with a special program on birds of the night at 8 p.m. The park naturalist will meet hikers at the nature center for an evening foray that will explore the night birds that call the dunes home, including owls and whip-poor-wills.

The weekend coincides with International Migratory Bird Day, which brings awareness to global bird diversity and annual bird migrations. Throughout the spring migration, visitors can visit indianadunesbirding.wordpress.com to stay up-to-date on recent bird sightings and activities.

For more information, call (219) 926-1390.

Indiana Dunes State Park is at 1600 North 25 E. Chesterton, 46304.
