Join us for the first presentation of our 2024 Spring Lecture Series presented by Impact Employment Solutions. Offered as a hybrid event, participants can choose when registering to take part in person at the museum or online via Zoom.
Each year, millions of migratory birds pass through the Great Lakes Region. Explore the astonishing world of songbird migration across the Great Lakes with Executive Director of Black Swamp Bird Observatory, Kimberly Kaufman.
- Learn where and why birds, and birders, gather in massive numbers across the Great Lakes
- Better understand the journey of migratory birds
- Gain insight to the global implication of the gathering of birds
Birds are fascinating to observe and photograph, yet also incredibly useful indicators of the health of the region. Together we’ll highlight information that both birding and the Great Lakes enthusiasts will enjoy and learn from.
This lecture is free, but registration is required. Donations are always happily accepted.
