In honor of LGBT Pride Month, join Audubon’s Christina Baal & Ryan MacLean for a special celebration of diversity and inclusion of both birds and people. To begin you will learn about the many colorful birds that call Audubon Greenwich home and go for a leisurely tour through our fields, orchards and woods to see many of them up close. Then bird artist Christina Baal will lead a fun, interactive workshop on drawing birds for people at all levels of art experience. We encourage you to bring pencils (regular or colored), paper and other art supplies.
Just as all of these birds and wildlife are welcome in our sanctuary so are all people!
