Heritage Fest-June 26 10am-4pm

Guys Mills Heritage Fest featuring Erie National Wildlife Refuge Open House – Saturday, June 26, 2010 – 10:00am-4:00pm

Kids love this Heritage Fest! They will love the games, crafts and petting zoo and more. There is plenty of fun for the adults, too.  Last year I really enjoyed the guided bird walk and the Tamarack Rehab birds and the beautiful artwork on display. There will be hot dogs and hamburgers for sale.  Get away from the big city and enjoy this quaint little town of Guys Mills and see the Erie National Wildlife Refuge.  You ‘ll find out why we enjoy going there so much.

Videos-ENWR- Bird Walk Part 1

During the Guys Mills Heritage Fest I was lucky enough to go on the scheduled bird walk led by Rich Eakin. He gave an excellent walk and I learned a lot. Another walk was led by Ron Leberman. Note: Other videos that show as thumbnails on the bottom of the video box when the video is finished are what YouTube thinks are related to this video. They may be from others’ accounts.
Turn up volume as necessary to hear the bird calls in the background.
