Earn Your Wings this Weekend

Your spring fever might need a little avian aspirin. Get your cure this weekend at Audubon Greenwich no matter when you wake up. On Saturday, May 22nd, there's events for:

Early Risers
Bright and early at 7am, take a hike for a traditional bird walk. Bring binoculars (some loaners if you forget). Meet in the parking area on Riversville Road. No charge!

Regular Joes
If you want to sleep in ever so sightly, come from 9:30am and stick around until noon to take a birding class called "Birds in their Habitats." You'll learn how different bird species depend on specific habitats, and how this relates to Audubon Greenwich programs. It's a good fit for adults and interested kids. RSVP by calling 203-869-5272 x 230 (ask for Ted). Will run you $12 for adults and zilch for kids.

Snooze Button Pushers
And those who can't get out of bed too quick can still party with the birds from 2:30-4:30pm for the Family Pond Exploration. Bring the kids and learn about bugs, amphibians and all kinds of other animal buddies living in the Indian Spring Pond. All ages welcome. RSVP by calling 203-869-5272 x 221. For members, adults are $3; kids and seniors $1.50. Non-members, adults are $5; kids and seniors $3.
