Birding float down the White River with Friends of the White River
About this event
Reserve your ticket here.
Join Central Indiana Land Trust, Ornithologist Wes Homoya and Friends of the White River at Oliver’s Woods for a river float and a walk to see migrating birds. We’ll meet at the preserve to board the shuttle to our put-in point for a leisurely one- to two-hour float back to Oliver’s Woods.
Back on land, Wes will lead the group to look for fall migrants making their way south through our city. Migratory birds use this preserve’s riverside oasis as a pit stop to refuel for their journey.
We hope you will stick around after your walking tour to continue birding, talking birds and conservation, and supporting Indiana craft breweries and cideries. Black Acre Brewing, Ash & Elm Cider and Indiana City Brewing have donated cider and beer for us to enjoy. Feel free to bring snacks!
A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to Friends of White River and Indiana Audubon Society.
