We will be hosted by the Lakeside Nature Center which is an incredible place to enjoy learning about local native wildlife, including birds of prey, snakes, amphibians, turtles, fish, and invertebrates. In the morning (9-11 am) we will go birding and have a discussion about how you can make your windows bird-friendly and why keeping cats indoors (or building a "catio") can help both birds and cats. Then in the afternoon (11 - 2 pm) Lakeside will be hosting a variety of programs and booths to celebrate urban birds and meet one of their avian ambassadors!  We hope you can join us :)  Location: Lakeside Nature Center/Swope Park Sign-up to attend here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0F4FABA923A2F5CF8-birdfriendly
