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 2015 Festival was great! We had increased attendance and the weather couldn't have been better! We recorded 119 species, just one shy of last year! The bird list has been updated, so check it out for the 2015.

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 at 6 a.m. on Saturday,
A reminder to everyone, that although we love our pets, we would ask that you do not bring your four-footed friends to the Festival. Thanks very much for observing this request.
May 28th prior to the official opening of the Festival. Guides will be at the parking area 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.
PLEASE NOTE: DAY TWO (SUNDAY, MAY 29) WILL START AT EAGLE'S NEST CONFERENCE CENTRE ON BIBLE CAMP ROAD. EVERYONE WILL...
MEET THERE FOR REGISTRATION AND BREAKFAST. PLEASE FAMILIARIZE
YOURSELVES WITH THE LOCATION ON THE MAP PAGE.
