This fun, two-day festival is our Annual Spring Open House & Native Plant Sale, with free tours of our facility, fun activities for the kids, awesome raffle prizes, and visits with our Education Ambassadors.

We will be announcing the winners of our 2024 Birds of a Feather Youth Art Contest & displaying all of the artwork that was entered.
 
Guests can play Battle for the Burrow corn hole, make the perfect Mother’s Day gift at our craft table, and more!
 
Shop for official WCNC merchandise, and pick up your diy bird-safe window kit.
 
Bring the whole family. Everyone is invited to this free-community event.

Spring is a great time to learn all about baby birds, what to do if you find one, and how to best coexist with wildlife during this crucial part of their life cycle. We’ll teach you about courting, mating, and nesting habits of some of our favorite birds & give you pointers on when and where you can see them.

All monies raised from the Birds of a Feather Spring Festival will support our 2024 Birds of a Feather Annual Campaign. Donations to our Annual Campaign support our mission of promoting compassion, empathy, and respect for all life through wildlife rehabilitation, ecological teachings, and wildlife conservation.
