Bird walks happening in Kotzebue
The snow is melting, the weather is warming up, and the migratory birds are making their way back to town. This weekend, the National Park Service will be running a series of bird walks with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Kotzebue.
The walks are free and open to the public, according to a notice posted on the Facebook page of the Northwest Arctic Heritage Center. They will be held Friday, May 19, starting at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, May 20, starting at both 11:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., and Sunday, May 21, starting at 2 p.m. Anyone interesting in joining is asked to meet at the Northwest Arctic Heritage Center a few minutes before the start time of the walk.
