Plan your trip to Nature Canada’s Bird Day
Bird Day will be held at Brewer Park, 100 Brewer Way, Ottawa, located right across from Carleton University and off of Bronson Ave. Due to the flooding of the Rideau River, the event site has moved to an area further north of the park. Follow the signs towards the school and arena.
