Thank you for making Virtual Bird Fest 2021 a success! We had a fantastic time sharing what we know about birds and learning even more from our community partners! This event would not have been possible without the Highlands Biological Station, the WNC Nature Center, the Asheville Museum of Science, the Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust, Mainspring Conservation Trust, the Jackson County Public Library, the Blue Ridge Audubon Chapter, The North Carolina Arboretum, and Appalachian Wildlife Refuge! Thank you all!
