World Migratory Bird Day – Mural Migration Walk

May 13, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join Sinnissippi Audubon as we celebrate World Migratory Bird Day on Saturday, May 13th. We will host a walking tour of the bird murals located in downtown Rockford and we will stop at two important urban bird areas – The Fordham dam and the Iconic Building. This walk is approximately 2.1 miles on paved surfaces.
We will begin at 317 Mulberry St. There are two public parking lots just east of this location at Mulberry St. and Main St.
We are planning to have the most recent Audubon Mural installed in time for this walk!
From this location we will head south to Forham dam stopping by two murals along the way. At Fordham dam we will view the American White Pelicans that have stopped over during migration.
Next we’ll head to 99 E. State St and then view one more mural before heading back to our starting location.
Along the way we will talk about the important of water for migratory birds and what you can do to help. At each mural we will talk about the artists, the species of birds featured, and the importance to protect their habitat, etc.
Please bring water to drink.
Special stickers/peregrine falcon card for all youth participants.
