Birds, Blooms, and Butterflies

If you love being outside because of the birds, butterflies and wildflowers that make the landscape so beautiful, then you will want to come out to our annual Birds, Blooms and Butterflies Festival. This year we are featuring two nature photographers (Bob Guiliani and Bob Domm) who will share their techniques as well as their photos. In addition, those favorite activities, hummingbird banding and butterfly tagging, will be demonstrated. Live raptors will be on hand, you can go on a nature walk with our staff, you can listen to storytelling with Nancy McCormack, or participate in kids' crafts. Those who want to convert their lawns to wildlife friendly habitats will be happy to see the plants for sale by Wildtypes Nursery. We have food and fun for all ages! Free admission and parking. Lunch available from the Friends of Dahlem. Sponsored in part by American 1 Federal Credit Union.

The Birds, Blooms, and Butterflies Festival will take place at the Dahlem Environmental Education Center, just 15 minutes from downtown Jackson, on Saturday, August 20th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
