Discover a Hidden Bird Habitat: Grasslands – CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER

Thursday, June 22, 2017

7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

640 Highpoint Sideroad, Alton (View Map)


Explore which birds call grasslands home. Learn how to spot breeding pairs of bobolink and eastern meadowlark and how these ground nesting birds raise their young. We’ll decode the secrets of their behaviour as we go waist-deep into a grassland. Also, hear how rural landowners and farmers are protecting grassland birds through the Bird-Friendly Certified Hay Program.

Please dress for the weather conditions and wear appropriate hiking footwear.

*Bring your own binoculars or borrow a pair from us.
