Yellowstone National Park and the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center will celebrate International Migratory Bird Day on Saturday, May 16, with free public programs and field trip.  

A bird-watching car caravan is set for Saturday morning from 8 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 need to pay the $25 park entrance fee.

Saturday afternoon between 1 and 4 p.m., the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, Montana, will host a live raptor program and a presentation on common birds of the area. Children of all ages can participate in a variety of programs, crafts and activities, including making bird masks, origami, and a migration game called “It’s a Risky Journey.”

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 National Park Service volunteer Katy Duffy at 307-699-2696.
