Indiana Audubon will be hosting the 6th annual Hummingbird Migration Celebration at Mary Gray Bird Sanctuary on Saturday, August 5. This event will draw hummingbird enthusiasts from around the Midwest to Connersville, IN for a one-day celebration of all things nature and hummingbirds. Participants can expect an assortment of activities on the beautiful Mary Gray Bird Sanctuary grounds.
As part of the event, vendors are invited to showcase the region’s diverse arts, crafts, and outdoor related services. Vendor applications are now available on the Indiana Audubon website. Vendor fees are $50 for the day-long event. Both professional companies, individuals, and civic groups are encouraged to apply. Sponsorship opportunities also exist.
The Indiana Audubon Hummingbird Migration Celebration is a festival for the tiny gem, the Ruby-throated Hummingbird. Event partners provide an opportunity for all to learn about these amazing little birds, how to attract them, and how to keep them coming year after year. Activities include hummingbird banding demonstrations to view hummingbirds up close, guided nature walks, a native plant sale, programs about birds and other pollinators, kid’s activities, vendor booths, live music, free fishing demos, and more.
