Great Dismal Swamp Annual Birding Festival

logo 2009

I wanted to share some exiting news about the upcoming birding festival in our town next month. The Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge is hosting its annual birding festival on May 7- 9, 2009. The festival is strategically held during the height of the spring songbird migration so spectators can enjoy the greatest diversity of species. The festival includes interactive exhibits, guided bird walks, banding demonstrations, bird house building, etc, etc.

Whether you are an avid birder, or just happen to enjoy being out in nature, the Great Dismal Swamp is the place to be!

All events and activities are free; however, space on bus tours, guided walks, and workshops will be limited, so reservations will be required for some of these events. Call (757) 986-3705 for more information.

Here are links to my post from last years event:

I hope to see some of you there!!
