Happy May 1st, and what a beautiful spring day it is!
Please consider joining us this weekend- there will be something for everyone
at the Montezuma Audubon Center's 12th Annual Wildlife Festival in Savannah, NY
on Saturday, May 5th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. !
KrittrKris and Feathered Friends, Kindred Kingdoms Wildlife Rehabilitation
Center, and Wildlife Defenders will deliver animal programs throughout the day
featuring owls, hawks, falcons and mammals. Festival goers can get up close to
these amazing animals, learn about their wild characteristics, and take a
for the festival schedule.
Another highlight of the festival will be the Family Theater Tent featuring the
professional magician and good-natured dean of green, Professor GreenPockets,
who will perform the "Bug Show" and "Magic of the Forest," fun, family-oriented
shows that promote ecology, habitat conservation and the protection of
endangered species. A new feature at the Wildlife Festival this year will be a
24-foot high rock wall to get a birds eye view of Montezuma! Children will also
enjoy the huge bounce house, making nature crafts and stained glass art,
building a bluebird box, playing nature games and winning prizes! Wildlife
enthusiasts can fish their way to the backyard bass game and then fly over to
see the dragons in the pond!
The festival schedule also includes guided canoeing trips and birdwatching
walks, a native plant sale, country music from 103.5 FM Big Dog Country, Tom
Barnes Acoustic Music, food trucks featuring Lady Bug Lunch Box, the Chicken
Bandit, Cayuga Lake Creamery, Sugary Delights, ice cream floats and delicious
baked goods, balloon animals with Miss Twist, face painting, dozens of local
vendors and exhibitors and much more!
