Shorebirds Birthday Party! (and ours too)

Birthday Banner.jpg

The shorebirds have a 'birthday' of August 1st to aide researchers in aging the birds.  In reality, of course, the birds are born on all sorts of days in the Northern Hemisphere summer.  But, we're taking on their 'official birthday' and throwing them a party!  This year is a 'joint birthday party'- ours and theirs!  Join us for the festivities!  

This is a family friendly event.
