Birding Celebration Upcoming at Local Preserve

Earth Day and International Migratory Bird Day will be lauded at the City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department’s Birding Celebration. The free two-day event takes place from 7 a.m.-1 p.m. on April 22 and 23 at the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve, 350 E. Galleria Dr.

The event includes workshops on birding basics, migration, and attracting hummingbirds, as well as bird identification, educational displays, walks and Bird Mobile tours. The Bird Mobile seats six visitors and is an excellent way to tour the facility, particularly for those who find walking difficult. Children over the age of 6 may ride on the Bird Mobile, but each child must be accompanied by an adult.

The preserve is located on the eastern portion of the Pacific Migratory Flyway and serves as a welcome rest stop for many birds migrating through.

International Migratory Bird Day draws attention to the journey more than 350 species of birds take between their summer and winter homes. It is recognized by thousands of people throughout North, South and Central America.

Earth Day, observed April 22 each year, is meant to bring appreciation for the Earth and the natural environment. The largest civic event in the world, Earth Day encourages support for environmental programs and connects people interested in creating positive change in their communities.
