Activities at the Centre

International Migratory Bird Day

On May 13th, Environment for the Americas is celebrating International Migratory Bird Day to raise awareness of the birds that connect the countries across the Americas through their migration. For this occasion, Le Nichoir and the Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) have organized a series of activities to celebrate the return of our migratory birds from their winter down south.

We are excited to be hosting one of three Wild Migration Maps, a giant 11m x 8m floor map showing the migration pattern of 20 at-risk Canadian species, at the Stephen F. Shaar Community Centre in Hudson.

Earth Day

Earth Day at Le NichoirIn celebration of Earth Day, Le Nichoir and artist Nancy Farnum from 2 Barn Owls in Hudson are coming together to pay tribute to Earth’s life and ecosystems.

Throughout the day you will be able to witness Nancy Farnum working on the construction of a giant nest to crown the snag of a century-old maple located beside the centre. We reluctantly had to cut down the dying tree two years ago, but purposely left the main trunk standing so it could continue to serve as a valuable resource for wild birds.

Come join us on April 22nd to witness the construction of the nest and learn about the fascinating ecosystem surrounding deadwood from the death of the tree to the moment it goes back to earth and its importance for wild birds. Discovery walks in the nature reserve, games, fun and much more are on the menu!
