| As schools begin welcoming students and teachers, summer hours and operations also come to a close at the Pascagoula River Audubon Center and anticipation of the arrival of Hummingbirds begins!|
In the next few weeks, Hummingbirds will be refueling for the fall migration to the south. In preparation, make sure Hummingbird feeders are clean and the nectar is fresh. Adding extra flowering shrubs and plants in the landscape is also a great way to attract the hummingbirds.
Here at PRAC, plans are already underway for the 2022 Hummingbird Migration and Nature Festival. September 22, 23 and 24 the Center will be “humming” with activity focusing on these tiny, magnificent birds. The festival will feature Brian “Fox” Ellis, hummingbird banding, vendors, exhibitors and hands-on activities for children.
The 2022 festival shirt is a new stained-glass design. It will be available in youth and adult sizes. Other special hummingbird merchandise has also been ordered.
More information regarding admission, event times, and additional programs will be announced soon, but save the dates!
