Accessible Birding

Visitors Center
August 6, 8 am

Accessible birding events aim to make birdwatching available to all. This outing, tailored for those with limited mobility, will last about 90 minutes. We will stay on firm or hard surfaces — fine for those using canes, walkers and wheelchairs. Our pace will be “slow and easy” and we’ll take advantage of Cantigny’s new pathways and benches as we explore the gardens and grounds. Beginning birders are welcome, and binoculars will be available for borrowing (first come, first serve). Wheelchairs are also available for sign-out at the Visitors Center information kiosk.

Limit 15 participants (including caregivers). Sign up by sending an email to jreiter@cantigny.org. Please put “August 6 Accessible Birding” on the Subject line. Registered participants will receive a confirmation email, and also a “pre-trip” email a few days before the outing. (If you are not an email user, call Jeff at 630.260.8218)

This is a free event but does not include parking, which is $10 per car.  Parking is free for Cantigny Park members.
