World Migratory Bird Day Festival

Each spring, birds begin their journey north. Wood ducks, osprey, bluebirds, tanagers and more fly thousands of miles each year – some passing through Minnesota, and some staying here to nest for the summer. Birders of all skills will find activities and hikes to enjoy for the day. Watch as a bird bander places small bands on the legs of songbirds, meet raptors up close, take a hike with a naturalist to find spring migrants in the woods and fields, and create some bird-themed artwork. Binoculars will be available to use for the day.

Protect our feathered friends!

Primary School students will be engaged in the art installation and story telling session. Selected students will showcase a dance performance to spread this year's World Migratory Bird Day theme of Light Pollution, with the slogan "Dim the lights for birds at night!" . We will also discuss ecological imbalance and conservation of migratory birds and their habitat.
