River Street Wednesdays this week features Audubon birds

The third River Street Wednesdays, a lunch-time city program, will feature Birding and Bino Basics, by the CT Audubon Society Coastal Center, on June 10.
The program begins at noon in front of Milford City Hall.
The City of Milford and Milford Arts Council have organized River Street Wednesdays, which take place each Wednesday at noon on the parkette in front of City Hall through Aug. 26.
“The events are eclectic and entertaining, meant to highlight many of the activities and beauty of Milford, as well as create a community place in the heart of our city,” said Paige Miglio, executive director of the Milford Arts Council.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or chair as well as a picnic lunch.  The downtown area has a number of restaurants where a bag lunch can be purchased, organizers said. Visit the Downtown Milford Business Association at downtownmilfordct.com for a list of restaurants and shops.
