Love those Birds

Just north of Perrot State Park is the Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge. This Saturday, May 9th is the Annual Bird Festival. The celebration from 8am til 1pm will feature activities from Coulee Wildlife Rehab Center with live animals,  Bird Banding demonstrations, special hikes and canoe tour in the refuge pools.

You can meet with Fish and Wildlife Service experts for advice on habitat restoration. Plus area businesses like Prairie Moon Nursery and Coulee Region Ecoscapes for ideas to make your yard a haven for birds, bees and butterflies.

A special presentation on Friday evening, May 8th, will be given by Laura Erickson, at 6:30pm at Elmaro Vineyard. Check her out at  If you love birds you'll love her. The Friends of Trempealeau Refuge are hosting this affair with Elmaro beginning at 5:30pm with wine tasting. Also be sure to purchase a bottle of the special commemorative wine "Bird Day Red".

  1. I saw the signs when coming back from Winona. Sounds like a nice event, but won't be able to attend.
