Huron Fringe Birding Festival
Huron Fringe Birding Festival
Over the past many years, nature lovers have congregated each May and June near the shores of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay to enjoy some of the best birding and landscapes in Ontario!

This year, in partnership with the Friends of MacGregor Point Park, we are proud to bring you Huron Fringe Birding Festival Lite, a chance to discover this region and other parts of Ontario from the comfort of your home and increase your birding skills too.

We've scheduled seven educational webinars for 7:00 PM ET to ensure you have the opportunity to get the most out of the outdoors during the day.

Click on each webinar to see the details and access the registration form. They're free to attend and proudly sponsored by us at Quest Nature Tours.
