GREAT BIRDS! GREAT PEOPLE! GREAT FOOD!
Dorion's Canyon Country Birding Festival is for you!We had our inaugural year in 2009, and it was a great success. Organizers felt that with an area so rich in bird species
and natural beauty, birders would welcome the chance to attend a Birding Festival here.
The 2013 Festival was great! We had increased attendance and the weather couldn't have been better! We recorded 120 species...a new record! The bird list has been updated, so check it out for the 2013 bird list.
PLEASE NOTE: Your Day One tickets include the "up with the birds" option (please select on Registration page) Just make sure you bring your tickets with you to the hall at 8 for registration.Those who are "up with the birds" , have a chance to say good morning to them! We are offering these early birds a hike at Hurkett Cove Conservation Area parking lot at 6 a.m. on Saturday, May 24th prior to the official opening of the Festival. Guides will be there to lead the hike. Those who attend are responsible for their own transportation, and are to return to the Dorion Community Centre by 8 a.m. for Registration and a delicious breakfast. There, they will join the rest of the birders for an official introduction and start to the day.
