FringeCardFebruary 1, 2013 marks the opening of registration for this year’s Huron Fringe Birding Festival (HFBF). That’s when the complete program and on-line registration will be available to you at www.friendsofmagregor.org.

If you want your own personal copy of our brochure just send us your request at: Huron Fringe Birding Festival Registrar – c/o Friends of MacGregor Point Park – 1593 Bruce Road 33, R.R. 1 – Port Elgin, ON – N0H 2CS. Or you can call us at: 519-389-6231 or 519-389-9056. We would love to chat with you about the Festival. In fact we would love to know how many years you’ve been attending. Let us know and we’ll highlight your accomplishment. Better still – bring in a new participant and we’ll have a gift waiting for you.

HFBF is highly regarded as “One of North America’s Premier Birding Festivals.” and one of the top festival values. Our prices are unchanged for 2013!  KW from Michigan says we give you “Great Quality and Price!” GT from British Columbia say we are, “Well organized. The hikes and workshops are worth it!” And SM from Ottawa thinks we are, “Friendly and welcoming!” Birders, photographers and nature lovers from all over Canada and the U.S. look forward to the festival each year. That, plus the fact that we keep our program sizes small for your maximum benefit, is precisely why early registration is important if there’s a program that you absolutely must be part of.

And here’s what you could expect to experience in the varied habitats of MacGregor Point Provincial Park and the Bruce Peninsula while at the HFBF • on the Grasslands – Bobolinks, Upland Sandpiper, Grasshopper Sparrow • Piping Plovers on the Huron Shoreline • Blue-Winged Warblers in Shrubby Habitats • Sora Rail, Green Heron and American Bittern in the Wetlands • American Redstart, Mourning Warbler, Scarlet Tanager in the Woodlands • and on the Alvars, Yellow Lady’s Slipper, Maidenhair Spleenwort, Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnakes.

PeterOn our first weekend we’ve secured a larger venue for our banquet. Peter Middleton is our keynote speaker at that event and his topic “Why Do Gulls Perch On White Rocks? And Other Insights From A Career In Ecotourism” is not to be missed. Not all of our programs are out-of-doors. There are afternoon and evening sessions with interesting topics and presenters who are experts in their fields along with birding and photography workshops.

So call, write or contact us on-line and make sure you’re part of it all. The Huron Fringe Birding Festival runs from May 24 to June 2, 2013. 

Registration begins February 1, 2013 at www.friendsofmacgregor.org
