Celebrate International Migratory Bird Day In Yellowstone With Free Programs

Yellowstone and the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center staff will celebrate International Migratory Bird Day on Saturday, May 17, with free programs and a field trip that are open to the public.

A ranger-led bird watching car caravan is set for Saturday morning from 8:00 a.m. to noon inside the park. Those interested in participating should meet at the Madison Junction picnic area. Caravan riders are reminded they will still need to pay the $25 park entrance fee.

Saturday afternoon between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, Montana, will host a live raptor program and a ranger-led presentation on common birds of the area. Children of all ages can play the migration game, “It’s a Risky Journey,” create bird masks and origami or participate in a variety of other programs and activities.

Construction is underway north of the entrance to the Norris Campground on the road to Mammoth Hot Springs. A 5.4 mile section of the road is being rebuilt, as is the bridge over the Gardner River. Visitors traveling from the northern part of the park should expect daytime delays of up to 30 minutes.

For further information, call 307-344-2296.
