Indiana Audubon is hosting its annual spring gathering at its Mary Gray Bird Sanctuary on April 29. The event includes multiple guided nature and birding walks, presentations, music, a free pancake and sausage breakfast, and more.
This year’s event is also the 125th anniversary of Indiana Audubon and the 80th anniversary of the Mary Gray Bird Sanctuary. A special lunchtime celebration with dessert and ice cream will take place in Brooks Hall.
Additionally, all visitors to Mary Gray Bird Sanctuary can receive the perks of Indiana Audubon membership, with free rustic camping and fishing on the sanctuary grounds all weekend. The weekend also brings the debut of the new interpretive birding trail.
Registration for the entire day is only $5 and includes the free breakfast. Thanks to sponsors, registration is free for Youth under 17 years of age and Indiana Audubon members. Box lunches are available to preorder during registration. Registration can be found on the events page at indianaaudubon.org/events.
