Wehr Birders

EVERY SUNDAY – 8 am at Wehr Nature Center

Walk the trails with Colleen Resendiz and our merry band of birders. This walk includes visits to lake shore, prairie and woodland habitats. It normally takes about two hours and it is not uncommon to see over 40 species in migration seasons.

Join us at Wehr Nature Center’s front entrance. Wehr Nature Center is located at 9701 W. College Avenue in Franklin. All birding levels are welcome. Mentoring is offered to beginning birders. Our bird walks are free. There is a $5 parking fee for the nature center.

You can contact Colleen at Colleen@Benefit-Realty.com to be included for updates on this and other walks she is planning.
