Stroll into autumn with guided birding walks at the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary

Add spending more time in nature to your to-do list this fall. Join W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary staff and fellow bird enthusiasts for a walk through the Sanctuary and keep an eye out for special sightings of migrating birds.

The Sanctuary hosts Birds and Coffee Walks year-round on the second Wednesday of each month. The walks offer excellent opportunities to learn about, locate and identify the many types of birds that frequent the Sanctuary, including songbirds, waterfowl, gamebirds and birds of prey. Afterward, visitors have a chance to discuss the morning’s finds over a cup of hot, bird-friendly coffee.

The monthly events run from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Program dates for the next three months are Oct. 9, Nov. 13 and Dec. 11. The cost of attendance for non-members is Sanctuary general admission: $5 for adults and $4 for senior citizens age 62 or older. Sanctuary members attend for free. Birders of all skill levels are welcome, and visitors can bring their own binoculars or borrow a pair from the Sanctuary.

The W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is located at 12685 East C Ave., one mile north of M-89 and just west of 40th Street. To learn more, visitbirdsanctuary.kbs.msu.edu. Direct questions to birdsanctuary@kbs.msu.edu or (269) 671-2510.
