It’s a New Year and Time to Make Some Spring Plans!

The snow has been giving us a bit of a break so far this year but there will be some ahead. It will soon be time to sit somewhere warm, get your computer or iPad going …….or maybe just peruse the paper copy of the Huron Fringe Birding Festival program and see what events might best fit with your interests. January the 15th the program is available online at:

and soon after paper copies of the program will be available at various locations in your communities. Registration will go live online at 6am on Sunday March 1st so you have time to think about what events will interest you most and possibly be fun for others in your family to participate in as well. Many of our leaders will be returning to lead some of the favourite hikes but there are also new leaders and new events this year so make sure you check out events for both weekends and see which appeal to you most. As you read this blog get your calendar out and mark May 22-25th and May 28-31st as weekends to get out and enjoy a bit of nature with former and new birding friends at the 2020 Huron Fringe Birding Festival.

Even sitting here typing and thinking about spring and all the migrating birds and the warmer weather gives me a warm feeling and seems to make the winter seem just a bit shorter.

We’ll get back to you with more information as the program becomes available and point out some of the highlights of this year’s festival. Meanwhile head off to the previous webpage link and make a shortcut in your browser so you can quickly see what’s happening in the festival this year when January 15th rolls around.

Many of the birds we will see are relaxing in the sunny south just waiting to get their new breeding plumage and make the trip north to entertain us in May. They make the effort to fly thousands of miles to, as well as through our area and its up to us to get out and enjoy as much of the spring bird and nature extravaganza as we can. Teaching all we are able of this seasonal event to our children and grandchildren and helping them enjoy it as well can be almost as rewarding as experiencing it ourselves. The world is changing so let’s enjoy nature each year as much as we can. Hope to see many of you in May at the 2020 Huron Fringe Birding Festival as I’ll be enjoying many of the events myself.
