2015 Rogue Valley Bird Day Celebration

“Restore Habitats, Restore Birds”
at North Mountain Park in Ashland

Saturday, May 9, 8:00 am 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 is, "Restore Habitats, Restore Birds." Some bird species provide practical solutions to problems, such as the need for insect and rodent control. Others disperse seeds, helping to revegetate disturbed areas. Others are pollinators, ensuring that we are graced with flowering plants, trees and shrubs. Beyond the utilitarian, birds are inspirations for the arts: paintings, poetry and music all express the joy that birds provide us every day.
