Save the Date: Capital City Bird Sanctuary Open House

6160 Delta River Drive, Lansing, MI 48906
Please join us for a spring open house as we celebrate International Migratory Bird Day at Capital City Bird Sanctuary, featuring a variety of nature walks and family-friendly activities. The theme for this year’s International Migratory Bird Day focuses on migratory stopover sites that help birds along their way. Capital City Bird Sanctuary is an excellent stopover site for many migratory birds that pass through our region during the spring and fall. Many other species utilize the 65 acres of forest, meadow, and riverside habitats protected by this public nature sanctuary for nesting and foraging activities. Nearly two miles of unpaved trails offer visitors a chance to get close to nature and observe birds, flowers, and wildlife.
This celebration will include activities for adults and children to learn about birds, plants, and other creatures that can be found in your own backyard. Attendees will have the opportunity to see migratory birds up-close during bird banding demonstrations by the Burke Lake Banding Station. The event will also feature helpful demonstrations on how to care for bird nest boxes, create native habitat, and volunteer with Michigan Audubon. Please wear sturdy walking shoes or waterproof boots for unpaved, grassy or muddy trails. Bring binoculars if you have them. We hope to see you there!
