Reed-Turner Nature Center, Long Grove, Illinois

This weekend your entire family is invited to celebrate our fine feathered friends at the gorgeous Reed-Turner Nature Center.  The 40-acre section of the original “Grove”, for which Long Grove was named, will be the venue for the oh-so-popular For the Birds Weekend event.  The occasion boasts 2 spectacular days of fun for both adults and children alike.

The day begins with a guided walking tour through the Woodlands where you’ll have the opportunity to observe an array of bird species and learn about the lives they lead.  Afterwards you’ll meet with experts from the Barn Swallow Rehabilitation Center and the Stillman Nature Center, visiting even more live birds up close and personal.

Additionally you are also welcome to participate in the Birdhouse Silent Auction.  Birdhouses, feeders, and bird-themed items will be on exhibit, awaiting the highest bid.  Meanwhile, the bird-art craft events are ideal for your children’s participation.  Special lectures and demonstrations will be taking place throughout the weekend as well including information about how to attract certain bird species into your own backyards with live bird demonstrations, and much more.

Admission to the For the Birds Weekend event is free.  So, plan to indulge in the fun this weekend! What a fantastic way to say goodbye to winter and hello to spring.
