Spring Bird Festival at Tommy Thompson Park

Saturday, May 11, 2019

Located on the Toronto Waterfront, Tommy Thompson Park is Toronto’s largest greenspace and provides critical stopover habitat for migrating birds. There have been 318 native species recorded to date at the park!

Join us at the Spring Bird Festival to learn about the amazing phenomenon of migration and the importance of bird conservation. A variety of activities will be offered for people of all ages and all birding abilities!
