SPECIAL EVENT: 9th Annual Wonder of Hummingbirds Festival

August 24 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free – $12

RECOMMENDED FOR AGES 5 AND UP

If you love hummingbirds, butterflies, gardening and learning about nature, make plans to attend the ninth annual Wonder of Hummingbirds Festival!

The highlight of this amazing event is the opportunity for small groups to get close to a ruby-throated hummingbird and learn about this tiny feathered friend during a banding demonstration by Mark Armstrong, a certified master bander. One lucky attendee from each group will release the newly banded bird back into the wild!

In addition to the special experience of hummingbird banding, you’ll find speakers on nature topics, wildlife educational demonstrations, and vendors selling food and drinks, plants, locally made arts and crafts, bird feeders and supplies, and garden items. Everyone who attends an educational session will have the chance to win a hummingbird feeder from Perky Pet!

NOTE: COME EARLY TO SEE HUMMINGBIRD BANDING DEMONSTRATIONS! Banding demonstrations are scheduled from 8–11:30 a.m.,  but banding is weather dependent and may end earlier if hummingbirds can’t be captured.
