Do you enjoy spending time outdoors in nature? Are you into native plants, birds, butterflies, and other members of the natural community? Join Michigan Audubon at our sanctuary stewardship workdays, weekly on Wednesdays from April through October, at Capital City Bird Sanctuary! We will combine fun facts and learning basic stewardship skills with taking care of our local bird sanctuary.

This little-known preserve is a great place to spot breeding Eastern Bluebird, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Warbling Vireo, and Eastern Kingbird. Help us protect this urban nature preserve by removing invasive woody shrubs and encouraging native habitats. Please come prepared for outdoor work; wear long pants, long sleeves, close-toed shoes, and a hat. Bring leather work gloves, water, snacks, insect repellent, and sunscreen, although we will have extras on hand. This event is weather dependent. If an event is canceled, all those who RSVP will receive an email by 5 p.m. the day before.

Contact Linnea Rowse at lrowse@michiganaudubon.org or 517-580-7364 with any questions or to RSVP.

We hope to see you at the sanctuary!
