Free Programs Mark Migratory Bird Day In Yellowstone

Like clockwork each spring, many migratory birds return to or fly over environments like Yellowstone National Park en route to their breeding areas.

Yellowstone and the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center staff will celebrate International Migratory Bird Day on Saturday, May 19th, with free programs and a field trip that are open to the public.

A ranger-led bird watching car caravan is set for Saturday morning from 8:00 a.m. to noon inside the park. Those interested in participating should meet at the Madison Junction picnic area. Caravan riders are reminded they will still need to pay the $25 park entrance fee.

Saturday afternoon, the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, Montana, will host programs, games and crafts. Children of all ages can play the migration game, "It's a Risky Journey," create bird masks and origami or participate in a variety of other programs and activities.

For further information, call 307-344-2296.
