Have you ever held a hummingbird? You can at the Macon County Conservation Districtís Hummingbird Festival on Tuesday, August 19 between 4pm and 7pm at Rock Springs Conservation Area.
Join host Vernon Kleen to learn about hummingbird species, their natural habitats, and what plants attract these birds. Then, you can symbolically adopt a hummingbird, witness the branding process, and hold it in your hand as you release it back into the wild!
Come for part of the evening or stay the whole time. Free festival attendance. Hummingbird adoption is $5 and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
