For Immediate Release

What’s Happening on the Riverfront: December 2018

Fort Wayne, Ind. – Here is a list of events and activities happening on the Riverfront:

Birdwatching on Our Urban Rivers - December 9, 2 p.m.

Lawton Park Trailhead, Clinton & 4th Streets

Winter is a great time of year for beginning birders to start in this fascinating and rewarding hobby! Our urban rivers feature a huge variety of bird species (even bald eagles!) and provide fantastic vantage points—you’ll be an avid birder before long! We will continue our partnership with Cornell University Ornithology Lab, tracking and collecting data on urban birds, and sharing our new found knowledge with them. This guided urban hike is open to all ages and experience levels. We’ll share birding tricks and trips, as you enjoy the diverse bird life along our rivers- and maybe spot some winter migrators while we’re out! We will spend the first few minutes of each program learning some basics about birdwatching and how to use binoculars (we have a few pairs of binoculars and bird guides to share if you don’t have your own). Each participant will receive a Riverfront life list. This program is free and no pre-registration is necessary. In the event of inclement weather, please check the Riverfront Fort Wayne Facebook page for cancellations.
