Only twenty-two days and counting until the twelfth annual Ladd Marsh Bird Festival begins! New birds are arriving by the day, including new clutches of downy geese and owls. Events kick off on Friday evening at the La Grande Senior Center, with registration, music, light refreshments, and program by “The Big Year” author, Mark Obmascik. Then we all hit the marsh early on Saturday morning for a full day of birding and educational activities for the entire family. All events are free of charge except for the guided field trips. Currently, Trips #1, #4, and #5 are filled. For more event information, visit the event pages here: http://friendsofladdmarsh.org/bird-festival-2/bird-festival/
See you all on the marsh in just three weeks!
