Come out to Bird Day Fair in Ottawa!

Join us for Bird Day Fair at Andrew Haydon Park, Saturday May 31st – 10am-4pm

Just as our migratory birds are returning to Canada from their wintering grounds south of the border, a huge celebration is unfolding across the continent to celebrate birds – and you can be part of it!

Bird Day is a celebration of migratory birds and the wild spaces they inhabit.

Join Nature Canada in a celebration of the incredible migration journey of birds through a day of fun activities for the whole family. There will be nature walks, crafts and activities, a live raptor demonstration, and an opportunity to meet local groups working to protect wildlife. It’s also a great opportunity to test drive our fantastic NEW app that helps you map local wildlife sightings.

Several organizations like Ecology Ottawa, Wild Birds Unlimited, Nikon, Master Gardeners of Ottawa and others will be there to share information about their work.

Check out our Facebook event page and our Bird Day pages on our website for more information on the day’s events. We’ll be giving away FREE bookmarks and Junior Birder Guidebooks in English and en Français on May 31 so be sure to come early!
