July 27, 2023 | From Friends of LBL

The Friends of Land Between the Lakes will host the 27th annual Hummingbird Festival at the Woodlands Nature Station, August 5 and 6, 2023, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Hummingbird lovers will delight in a natural spectacle as hundreds of Ruby-throated hummingbirds migrate through the Nature Station backyard. The hummingbirds will fuel up at native gardens and feeders as they prepare for the next leg of their long journey south to Central America.

Visitors can learn how to create backyard habitat for hummingbirds and other wildlife through this year's festival theme, Your Wild Backyard. Rain or shine, the event will go on so make a day of it, bring a picnic lunch, and stay awhile. A full event schedule can be found on the Hummingbird Fest flyer.

Festival programming includes:
-Hummingbird banding and release demonstrations
-Seminars on hummingbirds, bluebirds, and native gardening
-Annual photo contest award ceremony
-Live animal programs
-Kids’ crafts and games
