Google's gone for the birds. If you happened to click on today's Google Doodle, you likely read that James John Audubon, a revolutionary ornithologist (bird expert) and conservationist, was born 226 years ago today.
So the question is, how can you celebrate this unofficial bird holiday in Perry Hall?
Of course, you could go bird watching at any of our fine local parks.
You could also get involved with the at 8735 Honeygo Blvd.
This association traces its roots back to a meeting on May 8, 1874, when a group of environmentally-minded businessmen formed the non-profit conservation organization. Since then, it has become Perry Hall's own treasure trove of campsites, trails, an archery range, a wildlife refuge and more than two dozen acres of protected woodlands.
The animal sanctuary and pond are very bird friendly, said event coordinator Valerie Gorleski.
Use of the site is available to members only. New members may apply at the next membership meeting on May 10 at 7 p.m. Membership costs $126, plus a first-time fee of $25. Members are also required to perform on-site work hours, Gorleski said.
