ALGOMA BIRD CELEBRATION 2019
Plan to attend the 5th annual Algoma Bird Celebration (ABC) on Saturday, April 6, 9:00 a.m.—2:00 p.m. at the Algoma Youth Club (620 Lake St). Stay for the day or drop in as your time permits. Information displays and items for sale will be available throughout the day. Children’s book author/illustrator Janet Tlachac-Toonen will be on hand to chat about her wonderful picture books and offer story time readings before and after the live bird program. Free coloring pages designed by the author will be available for children. Programs begin at 10:00 a.m. with Bob Kuhn’s ‘Getting the Picture: Songbirds, Shorebirds, Water Fowl’. At 11:00 meet live owls, hawks and falcons at the family friendly ‘Hunters of the Sky’ program provided by Open Door Bird Sanctuary. Learn how to use native plants in your landscape to attract butterflies at the ‘Butterfly Garden’ program at 12:30 with speaker Karen Newbern of Door County Landscape and Nursery. The United Methodist Men will offer food and refreshments throughout the event. Entries for the Bird City Algoma student photo contest will be on display and prizes will be awarded. This is a free event planned by the Bird City Algoma Committee to celebrate World Migratory Bird Day.
