Swift Night Out — Lansing
September 16 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Enjoy a Swift Night Out with Michigan Audubon on September 16 and celebrate urban wildlife while sipping on lemonade at Smith Floral & Greenhouses and watching Chimney Swifts come in to roost.
This free family-friendly event features an amazing spectacle at dusk, when hundreds of Chimney Swifts flock together in a tornado-like formation, flying in increasingly tighter circles before dropping into the chimney where they roost for the night.
These urban birds have suffered a steep population decline in recent decades due to loss of habitat, insecticide use, climate change, and more. Information on how you can help this species, including citizen science projects, will be available at the event.
The event begins at 7:30 p.m. for social time with the most Chimney Swift activity starting just before sunset (7:47) and continuing through dusk. Please meet at the Smith Floral & Greenhouses’ parking lot at 1124 E. Mt. Hope Ave., Lansing, MI 48910.
If you have any questions, please contact Michigan Audubon Conservation Program Coordinator Linnea Rowse at email@example.com or 517-580-7364.
