Event details

Hummingbird migration is underway, and the birds are fueling up for their journey south. This is a perfect time to hang out in Plum Creek Nature Center’s hummingbird courtyard. Bring your chair, enjoy some refreshments and delight as the birds flit back and forth right overhead.

Drop in anytime from 9 a.m. to noon. Stay an hour or all morning; it’s up to you. A light breakfast buffet is provided. A roving naturalist will share hummingbird facts and answer questions about these tiny, winged jewels.
