CRYSTAL FALLS—The ninth annual Michi-consin Bird and Nature Watch, sponsored by Crystal Waters Resort and Lee LeBlanc Audubon Club, will be held on Saturday, May 19, at 7 a.m.
 Beth Rogers, Audubon president and ornithologist, will lead the bird watch through Bewabic State Park, a migratory hot spot. As many as 50 different birds were sited at one walk.

 The walk will begin at the pavilion parking lot and will take approximately two hours.
 Rogers holds a Ph.D. in ornithology from Michigan State University and a master’s in environmental education from Southern Oregon State University.
 As a research ecologist for an environmental consulting firm, and president of Lee LeBlanc Audubon chapter, she thoroughly enjoys the chance to share her knowledge and experience with others.
     If you have any questions, call the resort at 875-3195.
 “Bring a friend and don’t forget your binoculars if you have them,” said a spokesperson. “People usually bring extras for those who don’t have a pair. All are welcome.”
