What’s Happening on the Riverfront: November 2018

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

Birdwatching on Our Urban Rivers

November 11

2:00-3:00 p.m. – Nature Walk

3:15-4:30 p.m. – Bike Ride

Lawton Park Trailhead, Clinton & 4th Streets

As fall flows into winter, Birdwatching on our Urban Rivers continues. This is a fun and interesting citizen science program in partnership with Cornell University. On the 2nd Sunday of the month the program meets at the trailhead at Lawton Park to observe and count bird species from 2-3 pm. An estimated 60 million Americans enjoy feeding, observing or photographing birds each year. This guided hike is open to all ages and experience levels. Every month we will learn basics of birdwatching and using binoculars, and learn about the birds of our rivers. This is a free program and no reservations are required. In the event of inclement weather, the Riverfront Fort Wayne Facebook page will provide any cancellation information at



Young Naturalist Series - Hibernate or Migrate?

November 17, 10:00-11:00 a.m.

The November Young Naturalist Series moves indoors to the Psi Ote Lower pavilion at Bob Arnold Northside Park, 705 E. State Blvd. Kids can uncover the reasons why some animals hibernate, why some migrate, and how some adapt when winter comes. Participants will make a cave for a bear, find the reason why birds fly in a “V” formation, and enjoy a fall themed snack before the hour is over. This is a free program and is limited to 20 children plus their grown-ups. RSVP with Kim Weldon by email: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Winter Cozy is January 26!

The community is invited to cozy up with neighbors, break down barriers, and get warm in winter. The winter blues will fade away as everyone dances, plays, and recreates inside a heated tent with cozy furniture, warm cocktails and food for purchase, live music and games, ice sculptures, and drink luges.

Admission for this adults-only (21+) event is $10 at the door (cash or credit). Call Megan Butler at 260-427-6248 with questions. Sponsored by Majic 95.1
