16th Annual Northwoods Birding Festival
June 5 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Manitowish Waters, WI – Join North Lakeland Discovery Center in celebrating International Migratory Bird Day and the amazing natural diversity of our Northwoods region at our 16th Annual Birds & Wildlife Festival on June 5 and 6!
Due to the public health and safety concerns, the Discovery Center has made a few changes to this fun and engaging event, but your participation is still very much necessary. The Festival offers over 10 hours of online programming by local natural resource experts, including two Keynote addresses!
Presentations include: John Bates: The Wild Side of Wildlife Ecology, and Bill Volkert: The Migration of Birds, as well as a virtual bird banding demonstration, a small mammal trapping survey, and a water quality monitoring program, plus much more! The Discovery Center still encourages everyone to celebrate birds and wildlife by birding and hiking or paddling at your favorite location, in the Northwoods or wherever you call home. We will share the sightings and stories of the weekend with all participants through our interactive online format. You will have the opportunity to learn from experts on a wide range of environmental topics, and feel a sense of community by participating in a day celebrating our birds and wildlife. Admission is $20 for members of NLDC, $30 for non members. Register Today!
