The Audubon Center at Riverlands is back with our summer series, Field Day Friday! Join Audubon and Army Corps of Engineer staff at Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary to experience nature and learn what kind of plants, animals, flying, and crawling creatures spend their time here! Come explore Riverlands with friends, family, or as a solo participant. These 1.5-hour sessions are FREE to the public and will take place outdoors at our Nature Amphitheater. Registration is encouraged to manage and limit group size*.
*Tickets are limited to 6 youth per group in order to ensure that many families have the opportunity to enjoy these free programs. Families can register for participating youth; attending/chaperoning adults do not need to fill out a registration.
Participants will learn about Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary, explore what features make a bird a bird, and how both native mammals and birds have adapted to help themselves survive. Meet animal ambassadors from Treehouse Wildlife Center and see these adaptations up close while learning the conservation and rescue stories of these unique animals.
