The Indiana Audubon is hosting its annual fall birding gathering at Fort Harrison State Park on Saturday September 26. This year’s event has been scaled down due to the pandemic and will include several outdoor bird watching activities that can be done while social distancing safely.
The Indianapolis area has several great bird watching destinations, and this year’s event will highlight the fall migration at both Fort Harrison State Park and Eagle Creek park on the city’s west side. Opportunities to go behind the scenes at the Eagle Creek Ornithology Center, including its live birds of prey, and try your hand at kayak birding will be offered during the single day birding event.
Early bird registration for the weekend event starts at $32.00 for adults and includes an outdoor box lunch. In addition to registering, participants must reserve a spot in the various trips, as participation is limited for social distancing safety. Registration can be found on the events page at www.indianaaudubon.org/events.
