Migration Celebration (May) and 24th Annual Hummingbird Festival (August) in Land Between the Lakes
World Migratory Bird Day, the second Saturday in May, honors the spectacle and struggles of our feathered friends that migrate between North America and the tropics. Join us to be part of the celebration! Peek in on baby birds, enjoy kid-friendly crafts and games, and more! We’ll be spotlighting nature’s most amazing travelers with special programs throughout the day. Please visit our website for the full day’s schedule!. If you love hummingbirds, the 24th Annual Hummingbird Festival in Land Between the Lakes will take place early August. Join us to celebrate these backyard beauties as they buzz around our gardens fueling up for the next leg of their journey. Enjoy watching hummingbird banding demonstrations as biologists catch, tag, and release hummingbirds as part of a long-term research project. Discover how you can help hummingbirds and other wildlife, such as monarch butterflies, bats, songbirds, and bees right at your own home. Stroll through our gallery of local wildlife artists, stop by the native plant sale, and enjoy programs, demonstrations, a hummingbird gift shop, and kids’ crafts & games. Full event details will be available on our website by July 1. Spend the whole day by bringing a picnic or stopping by our on-site food vendors.
