COVID-19 Update

As part of Stage 3, the Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation is finally open! The centre will be open daily 10 am to 4 pm until the September long weekend.  Check out all our interactive exhibit, special family friendly “bird Nursery” program, scavenger hunts, trails, and our gift shop.

The LSLBO Banding Station was closed to the public again this spring to ensure that we keep everyone safe.  We are hoping to be able to open the station to small group tours later this summer if restrictions are lifted. Stay tuned for updates once Fall Migration Monitoring kicks off later in July.




26th Songbird Festival goes virtual!

Western tanager

Due to the ongoing health restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic, our Songbird Festival is going to be a little different this year.  We will be celebrating  spring migration with a series of virtual programs, a poster contest for local students as well as some self directed family adventures.

Check out our Songbird Festival page for updates on new programs over the next month.

We will miss seeing everyone for pancakes and banding lab tours this year,  but we hope that everyone will stay safe so that we can all enjoy the festival next spring!
