Some might say it’s crazy to go to Southeast Arizona in the summer, but it makes perfect sense if you’re a birder. Join Washtenaw Audubon’s young birders Benjamin and Matty Hack as they share the amazing adventures they had at Camp Chiricahua in the summer of 2016. From desert scrub land to the canyons to the Sky Islands, you’ll see the highlights of their birding expeditions. When they are not tracking Buff-collared Nightjars near the Mexican border, Matty is a freshman at Yale and Benjamin is a sophomore at Pioneer High.

This program is free and open to the public. Membership is not required, though we would welcome your membership to help with our environmental and educational activities. Washtenaw Audubon programs are held at the U-M Matthaei Botanical Gardens, 1800 North Dixboro Rd., Ann Arbor. In addition to the program, hear news of the latest critter sightings and field trips, and enjoy tasty snacks following the program.
