International Migratory Bird Day features activities focused on migratory birds and their protected habitats in Northeast Florida. This year, the theme of the event is “be the solution to plastic pollution.” It will highlight how individuals can make a difference in their communities to reduce plastic pollution and improve the habitats and survival rates for birds.

The event will include a number of activities, environmental exhibitors, saltmarsh spotting scope talks, and the migration game. Duval Audubon Society will be hosting a bird walk for beginners starting at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. They will be teaching the basics of birding and will showcase the variety of bird species that live within the preserve.

At noon, Timucuan Parks Foundation will be hosting a nature photography workshop. Middlebrook, a talented photographer, will be offering tips and tricks for capturing wildlife in photographs.
