What’s the word, bird? As we reboot our Science in the Parks series, we are excited to partner with the Chicago Audubon Society, Chicago Ornithological Society, Wild Indigo, and–of course–the Chicago Park District to bring birding to West Pullman Park! Whether you’re a first-time birder looking to get outside, or a seasoned veteran of the birding circuit, this program should be a blast! Our partners are providing expert guides to take you through West Pullman Park’s impressive natural oak savanna, helping teach you about animals you may find in your own backyard.

This event will go beyond birding by teaching you how to connect to Chicago’s surprising number of natural spaces, allowing you to make a difference for migratory species, and hopefully giving you a new appreciation for the outdoors.

Science in the Parks is an ongoing effort by C2ST to live up to our philosophy that “Science is for everyone.” Not only do we want to come into your community, but we want to come back, and to provide science programs that are relevant to you in the future.

Event Details

Saturday, September 18th from 11:00am-1:00pm at West Pullman Park

Address: 401 W 123rd St, Chicago, IL 60628

This program will be hosted in-person at West Pullman Park. Our goal is to host the program outside, weather-permitting. C2ST will work with our partner organizations to ensure that COVID protocols put in place by each organization, and the city at large, are followed and well-communicated. The following information will be emailed to all registrants the week of the program: parking, program structure, the weather forecast, COVID protocols, and any other emergent news.

Because this program is our return to in-person programming, tickets will be limited, so make sure you register early! If you are unable, or decide not to attend, we ask that you let us know so that we can provide the tickets to anyone else who is interested. Thank you for your understanding.
