Enjoy Guided Bird Walks in Gillson Park beginning May 5 and continuing each Sunday in May.

The Illinois shoreline juts farthest into Lake Michigan at Gillson Park, making it an excellent spot to observe warblers and other migrant birds as they rest and eat during their long journey north every spring. Beginners and experienced birders of all ages are welcome to join the free, annual guided bird walks sponsored by Go Green Wilmette and the Wilmette Park District.

Where:  Meet at the top of the Wallace Bowl near the Lakeview Center in Wilmette’s Gillson Park.  Don’t forget your binoculars and bird books.

When: Tours on May 5th at 7 & 8 a.m. and May 12, 19 & 26 at 8 a.m.
