Come and join us for this unusual opportunity every Friday, August 30 through October 4: Chicago Audubon Bird Watching at the Jarvis Bird Sanctuary.

Meet at the viewing platform on the east side of the Sanctuary. The group will remain on the viewing platform so people can arrive after 7:30 if they need to.

Directions: Exit Lake Shore Drive at Irving Park, turn east and follow that road (called Recreation Drive) south through parking lots. Go about half-mile to the large Totem pole. The Sanctuary is right behind the Totem pole.

A scope will be available and coffee will be provided (please bring your own mug). For further information or questions, contact Josh Engel at
