Happy Bird Day

| Free
Sat 13

Each spring Creemore has lots of visitors passing through. They come from all over the United States as well as Central and South America. Who are these visitors? Birds like the Rose-breasted Grosbeak, the Peregrine Falcon, the Bobolink and many more. On Saturday, May 13 we invite you to visit too as we celebrate the migration of our feathered friends and the beautiful countryside they use as a stopover on their cross-continental journey. We are planning special street decor, a bird house decorating contest, free family activities and a free local birding map with Creemore-specific info, as well as a social media campaign to foster this recognition.
