Every March, sometime around the first day of spring and St. Patty's Day, the Turkey Vultures return to Ely after a relaxing winter in South America. Dust off your running shoes and join us in a 5K run/walk in honor of these unique birds! The route takes you past the Ely City Cemetery where you can catch a glimpse of the Turkey Vultures stretching and warming their wings in the cottonwood trees!
