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 birdits journey between wintering and breeding grounds. This year's theme will focus on what birds are doing at various times of the year (nest, migrating, overwintering) and the importance of conservation efforts along every step of their journey.
Join us on Saturday, May 11, from 8:00 am to noon, to celebrate! Enjoy Wildlife Images exhibits, guided bird walks, shade-grown coffee, and a bird-calling contest for all ages. This outdoor event is admission-free and takes place at North Mountain Park, 620 N Mountain Avenue, Ashland.
