Birding program scheduled at interpretive center

Posted on 6/14/2014

The Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center in Washburn is offering programming Saturday highlighting the Lewis & Clark Expedition's birding activities in North Dakota.

Interpretive program coordinator Jeff Carlson said the expedition documented 28 different bird species during their time here.

Two activities are planned to help participants view some of those same birds, he said.

At 9 a.m. at the interpretive center, Carlson will conduct an interactive side show titled "For the Birds," which will familiarize participants with the birds seen by the expedition and some of the knowledge scientists have gained about them over the years.

The group will then travel to the Audubon National Wildlife Refuge near Coleharbor. There, trail hiking and bird watching will provide opportunities to see Lewis and Clark's birds first hand.

Both programs are included with regular admission to the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center, located 38 miles north of Bismarck on U.S. Highway 83.

In addition to the Interpretive Center, admission also includes Fort Mandan, Lewis and Clark's home in North Dakota during the winter of 1804-05.

The Interpretive Center and Fort Mandan are open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about the event, click here or call 877-562-8535.
