ELKHART -- The Elkhart Historical Society will host Bird Watcher Walks
on April 27 as
part of Elkhart's "Celebrate Spring!" weekend events. The
walks on Elkhart Hill will be offered at 6 a.m., 9:30 a.m., 1:30
p.m. and 5 p.m., leaving from Birdsong Books & Vintage Shoppe, 111
Gov. Oglesby St. in the historic downtown.
Walkers will look for the migratory birds that pass through Elkhart
every spring. The Bird Watcher Walks are a perfect opportunity for a
spring family event. The outing will be on foot, so walkers should
dress for the weather (rain or shine), wear good walking shoes and
bring insect repellent. And don't forget the binoculars. The walks
last approximately 90 minutes.
The cost is $10 for adults and $7.50 for children 12 and younger.
Children must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is limited to
15 people per walk. To register, mail the online, printable form
available at www.elkharthistoricalsociety.org.
To complement the walks, the Elkhart Historical Society is
offering a special "Walk with Lunch and Lecture." The cost for the
walk, lunch and lecture is $20 for adults and $15 for children 12
and younger. Lunch includes soup and half-sandwich or quiche, along
with dessert and beverage, at Wild Hare Café, 102 Gov. Oglesby St.
in downtown Elkhart. For information and the online, printable
reservation form, see
