[DNR] Mounds SP hosts birding weekend, April 25-27
Start Date: 4/25/2014
End Date: 4/26/2014End Time: Midnight

Event Description
Mounds State Park will go to the birds April 25-27 as the park hosts “Bird the Mounds.”

All three days will feature special programming, including a live bird of prey, bird walks and bird-banding demonstrations.

The weekend starts on Friday, April 25, at 7 p.m., with a presentation on the American kestrel, Indiana’s smallest hawk, by Indiana Audubon Society board member Jeff Canada at the nature center. A live kestrel will be on hand.

On Saturday, a morning birding hike will begin at the nature center at 10 a.m. and feature guest naturalist Brad Bumgardner. Park staff will offer backyard bird feeder crafts from 2 to 4 p.m. Visitors and campers also can explore the sounds of nature with a campfire program at 8 p.m. in the campground program area.

Activities conclude Sunday with live bird banding demonstrations from noon to 4 p.m. at the nature center.

“Birding is already a popular activity in the country,” said Jessica Rosier, park interpretive naturalist. “Recent books and film continue to make it more popular and mainstream.”

All activities are free after the standard gate fee of $5 per in-state vehicle and $7 per out-of-state vehicle. For more information, call (765) 649-8128.

Mounds State Park (stateparks.IN.gov/2977.htm) is 4306 Mounds Road, Anderson, 46017.
