Walk on the wild side: Elkhart hosting bird walk April 27

ELKHART — On Saturday, April 27 the Elkhart Historical Society will host Bird Watcher Walks on beautiful Elkhart Hill as part of Elkhart’s April “Celebrate Spring!” Weekend events. The walks will be offered at 6 a.m., 9:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 5 p.m., leaving from Birdsong Books & Vintage Shoppe, 111 Governor Oglesby Street in historic downtown Elkhart.

Walkers will enjoy looking for the migratory birds that pass through Elkhart Hill every spring. The Bird Watcher Walks are a perfect opportunity for a spring family event. The outing will be on foot, so walkers should dress for the weather (rain or shine), wear good walking shoes and bring insect repellent. And don’t forget the binoculars! Walks last approximately 90 minutes.

Cost is $10 for adults and $7.50 for children (12 and younger). Children must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is limited to 15 people per walk. To register, mail the online, printable form at

To compliment the walks, the Elkhart Historical Society is offering a special “Walk with Lunch and Lecture.” Walk and Lunch/Lecture is $20 for adults and $15 for children (12 and younger). Lunch includes soup and 1/2 sandwich or quiche with dessert and beverage at The Wild Hare Café, located at 102 Governor Oglesby Street in historic downtown Elkhart.
