The HURON FRINGE BIRDING  FESTIVAL (8th Annual) just keeps growing and now
offers 82 hikes, presentations and workshops related to birds and nature.
This is probably the most diverse and comprehensive nature festival offered
anywhere in North America.  It offers a wide range of birding activities -
workshops on Sparrows (John Haselmayer), Warblers (Mark Wiercinski), and
Nesting of Ontario's Breeding Birds (George Peck).  Also, offered are
classes for Beginning Birders (Peter Middleton and Martin Parker) and hikes
for the experienced - Birding by Ear and Bird Until you Drop  (by Michael
Carlson).  Participate in a Birdathon or take one of the many birding hikes
offered, from a group of expert birders and naturalists.

The afternoons feature many nature related hikes that will cover whatever
your interests are from wildflowers, geology, insects, reptiles,
butterflies, nature hikes, botanical medicines, forestry, dragonflies,
archaeology, photography, to ecology.

The evenings have presentations by excellent speakers followed by owl prowls
and star gazing.
