World Migratory Bird Day with Salinas Pueblo Missions

Salinas Pueblo Missions will host an event for visitors to come out and celebrate, "The year of the Bird," during the World Migratory Bird Day on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at the Quarai unit of Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument. This special day for celebrating was inaugurated by Partners in Flight in 1992 as a way to hilight its mission and that of its nearly 200 Partners. This second Saturday in May was chosen because peak migration offers the ideal opportunity to bring people and birds together -- to sow the seeds of wonder and caring.

An early morning bird walk will be led by Park Guides Murt Sullivan and Bethany Burnett.  Please join us for a bottomless cup of Shade-grown coffee with fine cookies.

In the afternoon an informal talk centered around this year's theme, "Year of the Bird."

By mid-afternoon, "awards" will be handed out that include T-Shirts and/or personalized Conservation Certificates.
