Le Nichoir Wild Bird Conservation Centre will open its doors to all on Saturday July 30th at 637 Main Road in Hudson from 10 am to 2 pm.
The event is free and everyone is invited to stop by and learn about Le Nichoir’s programs and to celebrate our 20th anniversary.
“We encourage people to come to the Open House on July 30th to see and learn about the many different species of birds that we have in Quebec. It is a day filled with activities for the whole family” says Jo-Annie Gagnon, Le Nichoir’s Education Coordinator.
Open House is a great opportunity to take a guided tour of the Centre and Le Nichoir’s outdoor aviaries, to walk the trails of the Sydenham Clarke Nature Reserve with naturalist Chris Cloutier from the Morgan Arboretum or to meet Chief Top Leaf from Mohawk Nation.
Each year Le Nichoir invites other organizations dedicated to wildlife and conservation to join the event and this year a record number of organizations will have information kiosks on site. Guest organizations include Bird Protection Quebec, Sierra Club Quebec, Nature Action Québec, Sauvons l’Anse de l’Orme, COBAVER-VS, Club ornithologique Vaudreuil-Soulanges, Société québecoise pour la défense des animaux and Fondation TD les amis de l’environnement.
There will be crafts for children, bird observation walks, a Bird Friendly coffee tasting, a chance to shop at La Plume Verte, a cash BBQ and birthday cake.
Come learn and celebrate with Canada’s largest organization dedicated to songbirds.
