Maybe you've been wondering ..... just when is Stepping Up for The Celery Farm happening this year?
Well, wonder no more. The dates are set: April 29 - 30; raindates: May 6 - 7.
I'm always pleased to coordinate this event, the annual fundraiser for our favorite 107-acre wetland and nature preserve. It's a terrific opportunity for people of all ages and birding levels, to walk the paths, to see, identify and count the many beautiful birds that visit during Spring Migration.
By taking part, you also raise funds to help ensure the future of this beautiful natural space. Loss of habitat continues to be a critical factor in species decline. Our 107 acres provide a place to rest, to nest, and to raise the next generation of birds and other wildlife.
