Virtual New River Birding and Nature Festival

April 27, 2020 @ 8:00 am - May 2, 2020 @ 10:00 pm

We really wanna go bird and nature watching with you…
let’s go virtually, with the help of Facebook!

Friends, fellow bird nerds and nature nuts:

Join us on Facebook, Monday April 27 through Saturday May 2, during our regular Festival week, for daily bird watching, presentations, photo and video highlights, giveaways, discussions, and … our t’shirts will be available for sale!

8am, Monday – Saturday, let’s go birding! We’ll try some live feeds from birding locations and we’ll post what we’re up to.
2pm, Monday – Friday, watch for bird and nature watching photo and video highlights.
7pm, Monday – Friday, we’ll be excitedly instructed and happily entertained with presentations and discussions with Julie Zickefoose, Mark Garland, Katie Fallon, Jeff Gordon, and more. Some will be live and some will be pre-recorded.
2pm, Saturday, join Keith for the special Zeiss raffle drawing. *squares are sold-out*
7pm, Saturday is an isolation party and it’s likely there will be… shenanigans.
And daily BROME and PerkyPet bird feeder giveaways!

It all takes place at

T-shirts are $30 each, or 2 for $50 (going to the same mailing address). To order, email with your sizes, quantities and mailing address. Women’s sizes small through x-large, and Men’s sizes small through xx-large are available in limited quantities.

Please keep in mind:
– cell/internet connection isn’t always possible and we’ll show up live as we are able.
– Rachel will do her best to keep everything on time, while continuing to isolate… Hahaha!

Thank you for your contributions and donations to the Fayette County Education Fund, Inc. The special Zeiss raffle filled within a couple of hours; the drawing is scheduled to be held on our Facebook page, at 2pm, Saturday May 2! We’re planning other upcoming raffles for the coming months that include bird and nature art prints and a homemade quilt! General Fayette County Education Fund program information can be found on our website, Who We Support, and please Contact Us if you have questions.

Happy spring birding and nature watching,
Rachel, Geoff, Keith, & Paul
