World Migratory Bird Days
To Be Celebrated Throughout Weekend of April 27 and 28
Dodge tall buildings and escape from a cat! Compete in JeopBirdy and Bird Bingo! Look through a spotting scope, learn how to use binoculars and go on a 10-minute bird walk. Make a model bird and Join the Flock! These are just some of the 20+ fun activities in celebration of birds at World Migratory Bird Days (WMBD) to be held in northeast Illinois and southeast Wisconsin.
2019’s theme is Be the Solution to Plastic Pollution and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR), McHenry County Conservation District (MCCD), Friends of Hackmatack National Wildlife Refuge, Lakeland Audubon, and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) are once again bringing a world-wide celebration of birds to the Illinois-Wisconsin stateline region! Participants are invited to complete activities and win prizes: the more activities completed, the more prizes won.
