The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Event Details

Please note: Wearing a mask is recommended for those who are not fully vaccinated. 

Hummingbird migration is underway, and the birds are making lots of visits to feeders to fuel up for their journey south. This is a perfect time to hang out in the hummingbird courtyard at Plum Creek Nature Center.

Bring your own chair and snacks and spend an hour or all morning; it’s up to you. Sit and enjoy as the birds flit back and forth to the feeders, flying right overhead. A roving naturalist will be on hand to share hummingbird facts and answer questions about these tiny winged jewels.
