Huron Fringe Birding Festival 2024

The 2024 Huron Fringe Birding Festival will be held on May 24 - 27 and May 30 - June 2, 2024.

Join us over two four-day weekends to celebrate spring in Ontario! Migration continues north through the fringe of land that follows Lake Huron’s great shoreline and channels birds up the beautiful Bruce Peninsula. From our base in MacGregor Point Provincial Park we bird near and far throughout these rich habitats. Late May captures the end of migration and the beginning of the nesting season to ensure the forests and fields are bursting with birds! Over 90 outings and events featuring top Ontario and global leaders are offered. Attendance limits on hikes.

Banquet keynote: Punk Rock Big Year with Paul Riss.

Online registration will be active on March 15, 2024 at 6:00 am.

Christmas Bird Count

The Christmas Bird Count is a Citizen Science Project in which participants monitor bird sightings within a given area for a day. This information contributes to a database reflecting the distribution of winter bird populations across North and Central America. This event takes place in early January.

Family Day at MacGregor Point Provincial Park

This celebration of Family takes place on the Family Day weekend in February. Come to MacGregor Point Park and walk the trails, feed the birds and take part in activities put on by the Discovery Park Staff. Many families enjoy the campfire, hot dogs, and hot chocolate provided by the Friends of MacGregor Point Park in the Friends Circle.
