Birds & Brew: Fall Migration

August 11, 6:00 pm

Categories: Aviary Events

Birds and Brew is back for a special evening of fall migration education. Join us for beer from Fisher Brewing Company while exploring Aviary grounds after hours. You'll learn how you can help migrating birds, and learn more about our night skies.

Light pollution can draw migrating birds into cities and cause them to collide with buildings. Learn about our citizen science program that investigates bird-building collisions, and the ways that you can help our feathered friends fly safely through our area. 

Lights Out Salt Lake program partners include International Dark Skies Association UtahSwaner EcoCenter, Audubon Rockies, Great Salt Lake Audubon, Clark PlanetariumOl' Skool Food Truck, Sugar House Distillery, and Fisher Brewing Company
