The Annual Hillman Shore and Songbird Celebration takes place at the Hillman Marsh Conservation Area on May 1-22, 2017.
This year’s event is a new and improved Shorebird Celebration.
“Building on the successes of our partnership with the Ontario Field Ornithologists (OFO), we have expanded the Shorebird Celebration to six days per week over a three week period,” explains Danielle Breault Stuebing, ERCA’s Director of Communications and Outreach Services.
The shorebird habitat at Hillman Marsh is unique in North America. The managed habitat creates the perfect combination of mudflats to provide nutrition and a resting area for migrating shorebirds.
Experts from OFO will be at the Shorebird Viewing Shelter from 3pm – 5pm Wednesdays through Mondays to help guests identify these stunning creatures.
There are also bird identification signs at the shelter highlighting distinguishing characteristics.
