A bird walk for non-birders

The Pledge to Fledge project is an effort to mobilize everyday birders across six continents to share their interest in birding with the non-birders in their everyday lives. The Pledge to Fledge website is www.fledgetopledge.org
Magee Marsh Wildlife area will join other places around the globe during the kickoff weekend by offering a Beginning Birder walk on Saturday, Aug. 25.
Beginning at 10 a.m. (to allow the non-birders to wake up!), it will be an easy walk and binoculars will be provided for those who need them. All birders are encouraged to bring a friend, relative, neighbor, co-worker, young person or any other “non-birding” person with them for this walk. Participants should meet at the Bird Center at Magee Marsh.  
If you need directions or have questions, call Mary at 419-898-0960, ext. 31.
