John Muir National Historic Site to participate in ‘Helping Birds Along the Way’

MARTINEZ, Calif. – “Helping Birds Along the Way” is the theme for this year’s International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD), the only international education program that celebrates the migration of nearly 350 bird species.  John Muir National Historic Site will be celebrating IMBD with fun, family-friendly activities such as a Beginning Birding workshop, junior birding activities, crafts, and other educational materials to learn about birds and their native habitat.

The celebration will be held on the John Muir NHS grounds from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 13. Admission and parking are free, and participants are welcome to stay and explore the house and grounds during and after their visit.

There will also be a bird count led by the Mount Diablo Audubon Society on nearby Mount Wanda the same morning, beginning at 8:30 a.m. For more information on the bird count, visit: https://www.diabloaudubon.org/cgi-bin/calendar/calendar.pl?view=Event&event_id=5403.
