*Birding by Ear and Beyond: Celebrate Urban Birds Event*
May 17; 10AM



The Environmental Interpretive Center is partnering with the Cornell Lab of
Ornithology to "Celebrate Urban Birds." On the morning of *May 17 at 10 am* we
will be meeting at *Gallup Park Canoe Livery in Ann Arbor, Michigan.* The
day will be filled with birding along the shore of the Huron River and for
an extra opportunity to hear waterfowl we will be canoeing in the river.
Lunch will be provided in the park and we will be celebrating urban birds
through art and song until 2 p m. This *FREE* event is sponsored by the
Center's "Birding by Ear and Beyond" program which offers *an auditory
experience for blind and visually impaired individuals.  *All are welcome
to join us as we engage in "Sensing Nature's Beauty." For further
information contact Donna Posont at 313-220-8140 or dposont at umich.edu.
