Good day on this partly cloudy Monday.
Tucked in along the Grand River in northwest Lansing, Capital City Bird Sanctuary is a quiet nature preserve with a rich history of conservation. While the land has changed over the years, the mission for the property remains: provide healthy, safe refuge for birds and wildlife. Wild Ones Lansing, an advocacy group for natural landscapes, invites Lansing to a presentation by Michigan Audubon's Rachelle Roake. Roake offers an introduction to the sanctuary and the many volunteer-led efforts to conserve and enhance habitat for birds and people alike. 7-9 p.m. FREE. Fenner Nature Center, 2020 E. Mount Hope Ave., Lansing. (517) 887-0596, wildoneslansing.org.
