8am - 10am bird walk; 10am-12pm Garlic Mustard Pull on:

Wednesday, May 13
Wednesday, May 20
Wednesday, May 27

Want to learn about birds while helping the birds, too? Join Michigan Audubon for free spring migration bird walks every Wednesday in May at Capital City Bird Sanctuary in Lansing. These walks are a great opportunity to tour the sanctuary and to learn to identify migrating birds. Following the walk will be a short workday to pull invasive garlic mustard and improve habitat for the birds.

Bird walks will depart at 8 am from the Capital City Bird Sanctuary Kiosk across the street from Hawk Meadow Park. Parking is available at Hawk Meadow Park, 6160 Delta River Dr, Lansing, MI 48917 (see map below). The bird walk will last from 8 am–10 am, with a garlic mustard pull from 10 am–12 pm (or as long as you’d like). Trails at the sanctuary are mowed, but uneven so please wear sturdy hiking shoes or boots. The grass is often dew-covered in the early mornings and the trail is muddy in spots. Ticks, mosquitoes and poison ivy are present so please dress appropriately. If you would like to help pull garlic mustard, please bring gardening gloves and hats are recommended. Snacks and drinks will be available to volunteers.

Please visit for more details!

Hand-pull invasive garlic mustard from the sanctuary. This weed has shallow roots and is easy to remove, but there's lots of it! Please bring gardening gloves and dress for getting dirty. Poison ivy and ticks are possible.
