Fontenelle Forest Migratory Bird Day

Join us for a Migratory Bird Day Celebration!

Have you ever wondered why do some birds migrate and others don’t? How do they complete their seasonal journeys and what dangers do they face?

Fontenelle Forest is participating in a citizen-science event in partnership with other state-wide organizations to help celebrate Nebraska’s Migratory Bird Month.

This event will include:

Guided Birding Hikes led by expert birders:
Bring your binoculars (or rent a pair at guest services) and your questions! Meet outside on Dennis Plaza during one of the hours listed below:

  • 11:00-12:00
  • 12:00-1:00
  • 1:00-2:00

In the Raptor Woodland Refuge: 
Join expert local birder Bob Wells in the refuge to learn more about the many migrating raptors that we have on display at the Raptor Woodland Refuge.

In the Nature Center: 

  • Meet some of our migrating educational raptors with their handlers up close inside the Nature Center.  Bring your camera!
  • Free migratory bird information from our friends at Nebraska Game & Parks while supplies last!

No registration necessary.

This program is free to members or with daily admission for non-members.
