Join in the learning and fun at the 14th Annual Butterfly and Bird Festival, to be held Sunday, June 9, 2013 from 10 am to 3:30 pm, at Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont.

This special event presented by the East Bay Regional Park District is dedicated to increasing the numbers and species of butterflies and birds in our Bay Area landscapes.

Tour the nectar garden, and learn how to create a wildlife-friendly habitat in your own backyard. There will be presentations on composting, bees and pollination, Bay Area birds, and monarch butterflies. Local photographers will offer slideshows of their best bird, butterfly and nature pictures. While you’re here, stock up on milkweed and nectar plants for sale from a local nursery, to start or supplement your own wildlife-friendly garden.
 
Kids will enjoy viewing butterflies and caterpillars close-up, making crafts, face-painting, and meeting animals from Hayward’s Sulphur Creek Nature Center. Enjoy whimsical and entertaining songs about animals and nature performed by Betsy Stern.

The event is free to the public, but the usual $5 parking fee will be charged.
