The show takes about 1.5 hours without an intermission and will be followed by serving of anniversary cake and coffee and tea.

Barn Swallow NestWatch
Barn Swallow populations are declining rapidly across Canada, and the species is classified as Threatened in Ontario. To learn more about threats to Barn Swallows, Bird Studies Canada is launching Barn Swallow NestWatch in Ontario...and you can help!
Barn Swallow NestWatch is part of Project NestWatch
- a citizen science program to help follow and understand the health of bird populations through the long-term monitoring of nesting activity. Valuable data collected through provincial and regional nest record schemes across Canada, and by NestWatch volunteers, supports effective conservation efforts for wild birds and their habitats.
