Join us for the 15th Annual International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD). A free event filled with activities and fun for all ages. Throughout the Western Hemisphere, people flock to parks, community centers, refuges and town squares to learn about wild birds, take action to conserve birds and their habitats, and simply have fun. Visit with Point Blue scientists conducting mist netting and bird banding research, identify birds and plants on walks at Muir Beach, go on an evening walk in Muir Woods with Steffen Bartschat in search of owls, make bird masks, experience how birds hear with Dan Dugan and the Nature Sounds Society, see Sequoia a live Wildcare rescued northern spotted owl, get your hands and heart into a habitat restoration project, learn how to draw and paint birds from the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators, get close and personal with Norcal Bats, go on a scavenger hunt, and hear bird programs in Spanish.
