The Wisconsin Society for Ornithology will hold its annual convention in Two Rivers May 14-17.

Birdwatchers from around the state will hike, kayak, bike and take field trips by car to view the birds that live or migrate to our lakeshore with its unique combination of shoreline, forest and grassland habitats.

Two Rivers contains three stops on the Lake Michigan segment of the Great Wisconsin Birding and Nature Trail: Woodland Dunes Nature Center & Preserve, Point Beach State Forest, and Two Rivers Harbor and Neshotah Park.

An awards ceremony and banquet are among the scheduled events. The keynote speaker is Dr. Ben Zuckerberg, associate professor in the Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Woodland Dunes’ annual Migration Celebration and Bird Breakfast is scheduled the same weekend; bird walks and activities for all ages are offered to the public.
