Birding is an activity that can bring calm and joy. Sometimes, the best way to see a variety of birds is to just sit in one place! On this day we will focus on listening for birds, and if we are able, we will try to spot them too! We'll begin in the Audubon Center courtyard where we will sit and listen for birds, then slowly make our way into our Children’s Woodland. This event is open to all, and we welcome individuals who may have mobility challenges, blindness or low vision, chronic illness, or other physical or mental disabilities or challenges.
