               "Celebrate International Migratory Bird Day"

To mark the onset of spring and the return of millions of birds to the
northland, the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center invites everyone to join
in the International Migratory Bird Day celebration on Saturday, May 11
from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

All ages can enjoy the range of activities, which include kayak bird tour
into the Fish Creek Sloughs, guided bird walks, bird banding, radio
telemetry, kids activities, and hawk watching.  Enjoy a special program on
"Gaia," the Center's live American kestrel.

The Audubon Society's bird-a-thon will take place that day, beginning at
the Visitor Center.  Anyone who is interested can join one of Audubon's
expert birders for the day.

All participants will receive a free International Migratory Bird Day
poster.

All activities except the kayak tour are free. Reservations are required
for participation in the bird-a-thon and the kayak tour.  There is a $10
charge per person for the kayak trip and reservations can be made by
calling UW-Extension at (715) 685-2672.

For more information, please contact the Northern Great Lakes Visitor
Center at (715) 685-9983.
