International Migratory Bird Day & Birding Bonanza!
May 8, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Join RIPA for a fun and informative morning of socially distanced birding. We will be taking a nature walk from the 103rd Street Footbridge looking for some of the migratory birds that use Randall’s Island to rest and refuel on their incredible journeys to their final nesting sites for the summer. We will be handing out free information and craft kits from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to help celebrate our urban birds. Binoculars will be available and sterilized before and after each use though bringing your own pair is encouraged.
All are welcome! Registration required for bird walk on Eventbrite.
May 8th, 10 am.
Location: 103rd Street Footbridge.
