Join Len Sander for a program on birdwatching in Israel. Israel is a heavily travelled migration route for birds moving twice a year between Africa and the Eurasian landmass. Len has photographed many interesting species at Eilat, one of the world’s busiest migration spots, as well as in other habitats in the country. Len Sander is a retired U-M physics professor, birder, and photographer.

WAS programs are free and open to the public. Membership is not required, though we would welcome your membership to help with our environmental and educational activities. Programs are held on the third Wednesday of the month at the U-M Matthaei Botanical Gardens, 1800 Dixboro Road, Ann Arbor. In addition to the program, hear news of the latest critter sightings and field trips, and enjoy tasty snacks following the program.
