      SPECIAL EVENT: 9th Annual Wonder of Hummingbirds Festival

      If you love hummingbirds, butterflies, gardening and learning about nature, make plans to attend the 9th annual Wonder of Hummingbirds Festival!

      The highlight of this amazing event is the opportunity for attendees to get close to a ruby-throated hummingbird and learn all about this tiny feathered friend during a banding demonstration by Mark Armstrong, a certified Master Bander. One lucky attendee from each small group will get to release the newly banded bird back into the wild!

      In addition to the special experience of hummingbird banding, you’ll also find speakers on nature topics, wildlife educational demonstrations, and vendors selling food and drinks, plants, locally made arts and crafts, bird feeders and supplies, and garden items.


      Banding demonstrations are scheduled from 8–11:30 a.m.,  but banding is weather dependent and may end earlier if hummingbirds can’t be captured.
