Our bird festival happens each spring and celebrates the wonders of the avian world. Guided hikes set out in search of early migrants and the first residence arrivals, while mist-netting demonstrations allow visitors to get  up close with some birds. Wildlife rehabilitators bring a large array of raptors for education.
