April 10 Birds & Brews Recap

April 10 was a fun night for Birds & Brews! We were fortunate to have Michigan Audubon's Conservation Director Tom Funke speak about Audubon's many sanctuaries. Michigan Audubon protects over 5000 acres with their 19 sanctuaries throughout the state. Tom had a wonderful slide show showcasing the habitat and beauty of these important sanctuaries. An added bonus, a drawing was held for a 2-night stay at the log cabin at Otis Farm Bird Sanctuary. Rita Montague was the lucky winner of this prize!

Our next Birds & Brews will be held at Wild Birds Unlimited in Canton. Stay tuned for upcoming details.
