Celebrating Birds and the Wonders of Our Natural World
Join us on May 14th (National Bird Migration Day) as we celebrate all things birds! Participants will have the opportunity to go on a guided birding hike or an accessible birding tour with Blandford’s educators, and an accessible conservation tour with The Land Conservancy of West Michigan.
Participants can meet and learn about a few of Blandford’s wildlife ambassador birds at a Wildlife Show, then hit the trails with binoculars rented out by Thrive Outside. This event also includes the opportunity for shopping; with books from Books & Mortar, native plants from Blandford’s Land Stewardship team, and art from Querkus Creative.
