Join us for the 14th Annual International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD). A FREE event filled with activities and fun for all ages. Throughout the Western Hemisphere, people flock to parks, community centers, refuges and town squares to learn about wild birds, take action to conserve birds and their habitats, and simply have fun. Visit with scientists conducting mist netting and bird banding research, learn how to track birds with telemetry techniques, identify birds and plants on walks at Muir Beach, go on an evening walk in search of owls, make bird masks and binoculars, see live rescued birds, get your hands and heart into a habitat restoration project to benefit birds and other wildlife, learn how to draw and paint bires from professional scientific illustrators, go on a scavenger hunt, and hear bird programs in Spanish. Bring the family and join us for the IMBD celebration! For more information, phone (415) 388-2596.
