Birdwatching for Beginners with Washtenaw County Parks & Recreation

Are your kids interested in nature? Do you look for outdoor activities and events? Do feathered friends intrigue you? Do you know a scout that might be interested in this fun, free program? Then grab your binoculars, a bottle of water and plan to have some fun as Washtenaw County Parks & Recreation and Naturalist Faye Stoner introduce the family to Birdwatching for Beginners.

Birdwatching for Beginners gets the entire family outdoors together.
Check out this free event on April 5 at Independence Lake at 9:00 a.m.

On Saturday, April 5, 9:00-11:00 a.m. at Independence Lake (3200 Jennings Rd, Whitmore Lake, MI 48189), families will enjoy an hour of slides and discussion about bird identification using field marks, habitat, behavior, and songs, followed by an hour spent outdoors practicing birdwatching skills. If you have them please bring binoculars and a field guide. This free program is suitable for kids ages 8+ and the entire family. Once in the park, plan to meet at the Beach Center Classroom. A vehicle entry fee may be required to enter the park.

For more information, visit, call 971- 6337 or email Faye.
