Riverfront Citizen Science Presents: Birdwatching on Our Urban Rivers

Birdwatchers at Foster Park

Riverfront Fort Wayne is once again excited to partner with Fort Wayne Trails to offer Birdwatching on Our Urban Rivers. New this summer is a partnership with the Cornell University Ornithology Lab. We will be collecting data to help track urban birds. This guided urban hike is open to all ages and experience levels. We will show you the ropes while you enjoying the diverse bird life along our rivers—you might even see a bald eagle! Bike riders should arrive a few minutes early, and be ready to ride at 3pm to ensure timeliness. We will spend the first 10 minutes of each program learning some basics about birdwatching and how to use binoculars. This program is free and no reservations are necessary. In the event of inclement weather, please check the Riverfront Fort Wayne Facebook page for cancellations.
