Celebrate International Migratory Bird Day Tomorrow At Magnuson


Tomorrow in honor of International Migratory Bird Day, Magnuson Park is having an event called "Migrate to Magnuson Park"  sponsored by Seattle Parks and Recreation, Magnuson Community Center Nature Programs and the Magnuson Environmental Stewardship Alliance.

The information says:
Bring your family to learn about amazing birds that travel thousands of miles each year to Seattle.
There will be guided walks, habitat bingo and other family-friendly activities beginning at 10 a.m. at the Magnuson Community Center (7110 62nd Avenue NE) 
Talks will be given by renowned bird experts Idie Ulsh and Dennis Paulson.  Go here to sign up for free bird walks and activities.

The Society for Ecological Restoration Northwest Chapter is also having bird walks as part of the celebration which can be found here.

The information says:
Sign up for these is limited, over the 2-3 mile distance some of the walking between points of interest will be a fairly quick pace, and focus will be more on ecological restoration of the park than on birds alone.  They will cover parts of the park less well known than the main wetland area.  Much of this restoration has been done by community based volunteers.
There is also to be at least one additional free walk in the Promontory Point Section of the park from 10-11 which will start from the educational pavilion located on the west side of the park’s most southeastern parking lot (southwest of the boat launch)  and also some shorter ones and other events centered around the community center on 62nd Avenue NE.
