International Migratory Bird DaySaturday, May 13, 2017
Nature Canada and the Canadian Biodiversity Institute invite you to join us for International Migratory Bird Day in Brewer Park on Saturday May 13, 2017 from 10am – 1pm.
This international event celebrates migratory birds making the long trip back from their wintering grounds in Central and South America to their nesting grounds here in North America. The theme for this family-friendly and fun event is “Helping Birds along the Way”.
Activities include guided bird-watching walks along the Rideau River and, especially for the kids, a scavenger hunt, storytelling, and crafts.
Falcon-Ed will bring trained hawks and owls for a raptor (predatory bird) demonstration, showing them flying as well as perched.
There will also be an information tent featuring local organizations that focus on birds and many aspects of their interesting lives.
Bring just yourself or the whole family and have a fun, interesting and educational experience that will open a door to the fascinating world of birds! For more information
