World Migratory Bird Day Event

Our chapter will be celebrating our second annual World Migratory Bird Day on this day with the global theme “Dim the Lights for Birds at Night” to focus on the impacts of light pollution on migratory birds.
The University of Illinois Extension and the Freeport Public Library will also be part of this event! We will also have bird treats from The Cookie Jar bakery!
We plan to have an obstacle course to show migration path that birds can encouter, a window decal activity to take home, and many other activities led by the Freeport Public Library, Extension, and our chapter volunteers. We will provide educational materials related to migrating birds and how to provide resources and protection during their migration.
In case of inclement weather or need for indoor space, the event will be held in the Freeport Public Library, conference Room A and B. For up-to-date information, please visit our Facebook page and website closer to the event.
