Why Creston?
Welcome to the 2015
Creston Valley Bird Fest!

Next Committee Meeting:
Thursday March 12th, 3:00 pm at Kingfisher Books.

This year's keynote speaker is Dick Cannings.

Dick is a biologist, birder and author living in the Okanagan Valley of southern British Columbia. He has the good fortune to live in the house he was born and raised in, lulled to sleep by the hoots of Great Horned Owls and woken by meadowlark song. Dick grew up in a family keenly interested in nature, and it’s nice to see the cycle repeating itself.  The yard is a wonderful one-acre sanctuary for all sorts of wildlife–and for my family as well–full of old memories and filling again with new ones.   Click here to read more...
