2016 Rogue Valley Bird
Day Celebration

Saturday, May 14, 8 a.m. to noon

Rogue Valley Bird Day is the local celebration of International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD), which celebrates one of the most important and spectacular events in the life of a migratory bird—its journey between wintering and breeding grounds. This year's theme, "Spread Your Wings for Bird Conservation," will highlight the many ways we protect birds, including a focus on the centennial of the Migratory Bird Treaty in the U.S. and Canada and emphasis on other agreements in Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean.
