Although some of my friends have become birders and have relished the chance to see gorgeous wild birds in their natural habitats, I have not yet joined their ranks. That said, the Guided Bird Walk, 8 a.m. Nov. 19 at the Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge visitors center, 12985 U.S. 50 East, Seymour, might push me into birder territory. Information: 812-522-4352.
Head to the American Red Cross Blood Drive, 2 to 6 p.m. Nov. 21 at the Bartholomew County Public Library, 536 Fifth St., to help out in one of the most important ways possible. Register at redcrossblood.org. Donors will receive a free book from the library’s ongoing book sale. Information: 812-379-1266 and mybcpl.org.
