Below are some photos from our 39th annual Mother’s Day Birding and Wildflower Festival. Due to cold, rainy weather, crowds were small, but everyone seemed to enjoy the activities offered.
We are gearing up for our 39th Annual Mother’s Day Birding and Wildflower Festival this weekend, May 13th and 14th. Most of the activities this year will take place on Saturday, however there will be guided walks and nature sketching classes offered on Sunday as well. The native plant display in the South Falls Lodge, bird nest box building with the Salem Audubon Society, and the native plant sale will take place both Saturday and Sunday. Most activities take place in the South Falls Day-Use Area, but two guided bird hikes will be held elsewhere in the park – those locations are noted on the map below.
The event is free, but please note that a $5 daily parking permit is required; in addition, the Audubon Society charges a $5 materials fee for building bird nest boxes.
We look forward to seeing you for another great year of birding and wildflowers!
