This year Le Nichoir’s volunteers and staff changed the format of the Open House to offer more to visitors. The new Centre allowed a larger outdoor venue, and the weather could not have been more perfect.
Bird Protection Quebec, Club Ornithologique de Vaudreuil-Soulanges and Joël Coutu led bird watching tours every 30 minutes. And, for the first time, Le Nichoir also offered a series of workshops hosted by the David Suzuki Foundation, Morgan Arboretum and Joël Coutu.
The open house was a great opportunity to visit our new facility and experience first hand the Centre’s education program at the interactive education kiosk.
The event drew both new and familiar faces interested in observing Le Nichoir’s patients and meeting a variety of environmental organizations including Sierra Club Canada, Nature-Action Québec, TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, COBAVER-VS and Chief Top Leaf.
The Hudson Fire Department and Le Nichoir’s volunteers were also there to give a hand.
A very big thank you to our sponsors and to the Town of Hudson for the use of their tents.
