17th Annual Springsong – A Celebration of Birds and Birding
Friday, May 11 to Sunday, May 13
Traditionally held on Mother’s Day Weekend. It is a weekend of celebration involving books and birds. This event was started in 2002 as a fundraiser for The Heritage Centre with the help of Pelee Island Bird Observatory and Margaret Atwood. Margaret Atwood continues the tradition of bringing award winning authors to our island where they are introduced by her at our traditionally sold out banquet.
We are thrilled to announce our guest author for Springsong Banquet 2018 – MADELEINE THIEN
Botham Cup Bird Race – Take part in the 24 hour “green” bird race and rally for the coveted Botham Cup. The official gong is sounded at the Heritage Centre, Friday at noon. Your team will have 24 hours to spot as many of the 311 species of birds that visit our island. Finish the day at Springsong Banquet where Margaret Atwood will give out the famous rubber chicken awards!
