Huron Fringe Birding Festival

May 24 – 27 & May 30 – June 2, 2013

Our festival takes its name from the migration corridor along the Bruce Peninsula.  This “Huron Fringe” along the Lake Huron coastline offers birders, naturalists and photographers unique opportunities to discover nature in the early spring.  At the end of the migration period, birds are on nest, migrants are everywhere, insects abound and wildflowers are beginning to bloom.  From our base at MacGregor Point Provincial Park we are uniquely placed to explore Lake Huron’s shoreline and the Bruce Peninsula to discover all that spring has to offer.

Morning activities are filled with guided hikes concentrating not only on birds but wildflowers, butterflies and insects, in and outside the park.  Afternoons feature additional hikes, workshops on bird identification and nature photography, plus other natural interests.

Special events include a banquet with a special guest speaker.  Evening highlights include illustrated programs featuring excellent presenters and night hikes.

Join us for this eight-day Birding and Nature Festival held annually on the first two weekends after the May 24th (Victoria Day) long weekend.

To complete the online registration process please select the registration field from the Huron Fringe Birding Festival ‘drop-down’ menu.
