Land Between the Lakes Hummingbird Festival
August 5, 2023 @ 10:00 am – August 6, 2023 @ 4:00 pm
Bon Voyage! It is 1,086 miles from here to the Yucatan. This weekend marks the beginning of the great hummingbird migration through Land Between the Lakes! If you love hummingbirds, this is the event for you! August brings hundreds and hundreds of hummingbirds as they migrate south to Central America.
You can see as many as 200 of them in a single day at the Nature Station! Join us to celebrate this natural spectacle and watch the backyard beauties as they buzz around the native gardens, fueling up for the next leg of their long journey. Discover how you can help hummingbirds and other migrating wildlife, such as monarchs, bats, dragonflies, and songbirds, right at your own home!
Stop by the native plant sale or the Pollinator Photo Gallery. Enjoy backyard habitat programs and demonstrations all weekend! This year, as we celebrate our 27th anniversary, our focus will be creating a “Paradise for Pollinators.” Explore the tips & techniques from experts on how to “DIY” or make your backyard habitat a paradise for hummingbirds, native bees, butterflies, and more. And kids, there will be plenty of pollinator games, crafts, and activities to keep you busy all day!
