Bird Watching (WAG)
This weekend, Saturday April 30, the Winnipeg Art Gallery offers an urban bird-watching excursion with renowned birder Rudolf Koes, in conjunction with Erika Lincoln's terrific new show, The Singing Condition. Lincoln looks at the hybrid realities of urban birds - nests made from cigarette papers and plastic bags, birdcalls that mimic car alarms and crosswalk signals.
Junction Walk (Vic Gedris)
Saturday May 7 & Sunday May 8: Looking ahead to next weekend, Jane's Walk will be hitting Winnipeg's streets and sidewalks. Named for the famous urban activist and writer Jane Jacobs (The Death and Life of Great American Cities).
This annual event celebrates Jacobs' notion that the only way to really know a city is to "get out and walk." This year you can choose a guided walking tour of modernist buildings, stroll through the new Central Park, get sentimental about Transcona, and more.
