The theme of International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD) 2010 is " The Power of Partnerships in Bird Conservation".
While ongoing threats continue to endanger many of the nearly 350 species of birds that annually migrate between summer and winter habitats, conservation organizations, federal and state agencies, and individuals have shown that they can make a real difference.
Join the MK Nature Center staff educators, volunteers and partners for a day of learning activity stations, live bird presentations, birding walks, face painting, nature arts, wood carving demonstrations, netting and bird banding, prizes and fun for the entire family. Picnicking will be available. Our partners for 2010 include; Idaho Bird Observatory, Bureau of Land Management, Boise National Forest, Golden Eagle Audubon, Idaho Master Naturalist Sage Brush Steppe Chapter, Idaho Watchable Wildlife, Anser Charter School, Borah High school students and more.
Activity Schedule coming soon! We hope to see you here! Volunteers are being accepted for this event. Contact Cass Meissner.
