Wonder Walk: Eliza Howell Park

From the event description:

Eliza Howell Park, located in Northwest Detroit, is an urban park with a surprising diversity of bird, native plant and tree species. This park is home to at least 34 different species of birds and, therefore, is a favorite of local birders. "Mr. Eliza Howell Park," Leonard Weber himself, will be your guide. He has been documenting Eliza Howell Park's birds for almost fifteen years. Sister Virginia "Ginny" King, a passionate Adrian Dominican Sister, will be serving as the spiritual leader for the Eliza Howell Wonder Walk. Light refreshments--cider and doughnuts perhaps?--will be served. Donations are welcome and appreciated.

When: Saturday, Oct. 26, 10 a.m.-12 p.m.
Where: Eliza Howell Park, 23751 Fenkell Street
Admission: Free
