Land-bound humans with feet firmly planted on the ground will never experience the freedom of flight as birds know it. But for one day, people can let their imaginations fly free.
Want a thrill this spring? LUD of La Riviere invites you to come join us as we celebrate and watch the spring migration of amazing hawks and eagles through Manitoba’s scenic Pembina Valley. Come see the sky burst into motion and color. No experience necessary.
Whether you are a seasoned birder or just curious about the hobby, bring your binoculars and a camera, and dress for the weather. Or join others indoors for the jaw dropping natural spectacle of live raptors. This festival brings together birders and photographers of all stripes to learn and explore with top notch professionals and enthusiastic local guides. See live birds of prey, see them eye-to-eye, score some fantastic close-up photos and gain insight into the challenges these birds face in the wild.
Browse through the educational displays presented by Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre, Burrowing Owl Recovery Project, Bird Studies Canada, MB Breeding Bird Atlas, Pembina Valley Conservation District, A Rocha Pembina Valley, Oak Hammond Marsh and Pembina Manitou CDC, all with the support of Golden West Radio.
