The Land Conservancy has partnered with the Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society to bring you an exciting bird watching event at Brighton Park with David Lindo.
Known as The Urban Birder, Mr. Lindo is a broadcaster, writer, speaker, educator and bird tour leader. His mission is to engage city folk around the world with the environment through the medium of birds. He’ll be traveling to Cleveland from the UK for a weekend of birding on Ohio’s north coast.
Brighton Park is a brownfield turned greenspace in the heart of Cleveland’s Old Brooklyn neighborhood. Western Reserve Land Conservancy and its partners spent over 10 years protecting and reclaiming this site. Today it serves as a vibrant greenspace for neighborhood residents to enjoy. The trail through Brighton Park is a key connector between the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and the Towpath Trail.
Advanced registration is required.
