Join Lake Erie Nature & Science Center on Saturday, April 27, for its fourth annual Birds of Lake Erie Day sponsored by BakerHostetler.

This year, the Center is presenting two bundles for the day-long event. The “Early Bird” bundle will be geared toward preteens through adults and will begin at 7 a.m. with an optional hike through Huntington Reservation with birding expert Tim Jasinski in search for spring migrants. Beginning at 9:30 a.m., Early Bird guests will enjoy an animal presentation, a planetarium show about light pollution and a wildlife rehabilitation report that includes an update on Cleveland’s Lights Out initiative.

The “Bird Fun for Everyone” bundle beginning at 10 a.m. will cater to families with young children. Families will enjoy a fun morning of bird activities including a live raptor program featuring the Center’s resident hawks, owls and falcons. They will have the opportunity to decorate their own flying eagle craft, blast off into space in Schuele Planetarium and go on a guided journey outdoors to learn about local birds.  

  • Early Bird Bundle: 7 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

  • Bird Fun for Everyone Bundle: 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Each bundle costs $10/person. All proceeds from Birds of Lake Erie Day will support the Center's wildlife rehabilitation program which examines over 100 different species and over 1,400 animals each year.
