April 2009

Since leaving the center in 2007 I have made it a point to go back the last couple of years for their Annual Earth Day Open House Celebration.

It’s the largest event of the year for the center and let me just say that it is fun for all. On top of all the beautiful birds there is music, dance, food and numerous kids activities going on (which, might I add, is super fun for adults too!) 

If you just so happen to be in Eugene this Sunday I recommend you stop in…..you won’t be disappointed…..I promise! It’s been going on for 15 years now…they know what they are doing. I’m not kidding.

below is an image and text i have copied from their website:


you may have better luck just going to the website since the copy and paste ain’t all it’s cracked up to be in this here blurbb….
