Bird enthusiasts can share their passion and prepare Halton Hills to become a bird-friendly zone.

The Bird Friendly Symposium will feature guest speakers and birding experts who will share stories about bird watching and feeding with the aim of getting the town recognized as a Bird Friendly City

A Bird Friendly City is an official designation given out by Nature Canada, an environmental organization headquartered in Ottawa.

The designation recognizes communities where key threats to birds are effectively mitigated, nature is restored so native bird populations can thrive, residents are actively engaged in admiring and monitoring local bird populations, and organizations are creating events to protect birds.

The symposium will take place April 25 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Alcott Room at the Mold-Masters SportsPlex. You need a ticket to attend but the event is free.

Guest speaker will be Autumn Jordan, a Nature Canada Bird Friendly City Organizer, who will shed light on the national significance of the Bird Friendly City certification and share how communities across Canada, including Halton Hills, are coming together to protect our feathered friends.

As well, a Halton Hills library staff will be available to show a selection of their bird-friendly resources, from picture books and field guides to binoculars and hiking kits.

Further, you will be able to hear from community members and organizations about their contributions to making Halton Hills bird-friendly.
