CEDAR CITY – Migratory birds are on their way to the northern hemisphere and they will be welcomed back to the community at the International Migratory Bird Day Festival Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon at the West Canyon Park.

The Bureau of Land Management is hosting the event in partnership with the United States Forest Service, Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, Southern Utah University and Cedar Middle School Governors Youth Council.

The International Migratory Bird Day celebration recognizes the plight of the migratory birds and the many conservation efforts to address their unique needs with information booths, games, bird walks, prizes and other demonstrations that cater to small children and their families.

Leading up to the International Migratory Bird Day Festival elementary school age students could participate in a poster contest that showcases migratory birds or their habitats. Entries were due April 30 and the winners of the poster contest will be announced at the IMBD Festival.
