Annual Spring into Nature celebration set for April 30 at Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge
Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) in Alabama and Shelby is hosting its annual Spring Into Nature celebration from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 30.
Activities will be at the Refuge Visitor Center on Casey Road with a bald eagle watch located at Cayuga Overlook on Route 77. Join us as we welcome spring back to the swamp with a variety of nature-related exhibits, plus free crafts and games for the kids.
Our theme for Spring Into Nature is Migration, in honor of the Migratory Bird Treaty Centennial 1916-2016. This treaty forms the cornerstone of our efforts to conserve birds that migrate across international borders.
During Spring into Nature we will offer activities and programs that create awareness, promote actions, increase support, and expand engagement in the conservations of migratory birds and animals. Family favorites such as constructing bat and butterfly houses and seeing live birds of prey are among some of the returning favorites. Food will be available for purchase.
