Bird Walk at Bernard W. Baker Sanctuary

Learn How to Document Observations with eBird


Monday, May 17, 2021
9:30 am – 12 pm

Experience the wonder of spring bird song and peak migration!
This free bird walk will be co-led by Michigan Audubon Conservation Program Coordinator Linnea Rowse and Southwest Michigan Land Conservancy Stewardship Director Mitch Lettow.
We will walk on unpaved, mowed grass trails, with a few rolling hills. Walks are suitable for all ages and for any level of birding experience. Before the bird walk, we recommend loading the eBird app onto a smartphone or tablet device if you can. We will be actively helping everyone to learn how to use eBird to document birds at the sanctuary.

Please follow this link to register. The bird walk is free but will be limited to 20 people or less. Registration is required and there is a $10 suggested donation for each participant. Donations from this bird walk will be used for the Bernard W. Baker Sanctuary habitat improvement projects that are underway for 2021.

Participants are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing while on the tour. If you have a fever, respiratory symptoms, or are not feeling well, please stay home.

Binoculars, a smartphone if you have it, and wear weather-appropriate clothing and footwear.

If you have any questions or if you are having trouble registering, please email Linnea Rowse or call her at 517-580-7364.
