The Ladd Marsh Bird Festival is nearly here! Things kick off with a social event at the Union County Senior Center on Cove Avenue in La Grande at 6:00 pm, Friday, May 13th. If you have already registered for the Festival and a field trip, you can pick up your packet Friday night. If you are a late comer, join us to register and to listen to music (appropriately birdy), and enjoy some snacks and conversations.
Registration continues at a white trailer parked at the Tule Lake Auto Tour area on Peach Road, between 6:00am and 12:00 noon on Saturday morning. Stop by the trailer to register and pick up your information packet and a Ladd Marsh Bird Festival Passport. Expert birders will be available to help identify birds at six Birding Stations around the marsh until noon on Saturday.

We look forward to seeing you on the marsh!
