Lunch & Learn: Birds of Barrington with Birder & Conservationist Wendy Paulson

May 17, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 12:45 pm

Barrington’s White House is excited to announce its newest “Lunch & Learn” cultural event series. Community members are invited to bring their lunch and enjoy discussions, demonstrations, and more on a variety of topics. Tickets are $10 per person and include non-alcoholic drinks.

Spring has sprung! Join local naturalist Wendy Paulson while she explores the many beautiful birds that live in and around Barrington. Barrington is especially rich in natural areas, from forest preserves to privately protected sites, which host a variety of bird species.

Wendy will lead a walk at Baker’s Lake that afternoon at 3:30 pm. If you’d like to join, click HERE to view the full schedule with instructions on how to register.
