SpringFest at Birdcraft

Please join us at the Birdcraft Sanctuary and Museum in Fairfield tomorrow, April 24, from 10-2 for SpringFest. This special new event will feature a variety of family activities, lectures, literature and a guided bird walk. We will have two scheduled discussions given by the CAS Senior Director of Science and Conservation, Milan Bull. At 11 the talk will be on the near-demise and incredible recovery of the Eastern Bluebird. At 12:30 the topic will be hummingbirds, the tiny creatures many of us enjoy seeing in our yards every spring and summer - and who will be migrating back to our state very soon.

Also in store: are a cell phone scavenger hunt through our 6-acre Sanctuary; Curator Frank Mitchell will be on hand to discuss our Museum collection; children’s activities including bird bingo, scavenger hunts, seed plantings and bird crafts. You can purchase birdhouses, feeders, potted plants, birdseed and food specifically for hummingbirds and bluebirds, and staff will answer questions and share tips for setting up birdhouses and feeders. Light refreshments will be available. Fee: $2/adult, $1/child CAS Members; $4/adult, $2/child Non-members.
