Let’s Go Birding          
 I want to invite you to be part of something wonderful!  

The Creston Valley is one of the most important bird habitats in Canada with over 300 avian species recorded.  Since 2013, the Creston Valley Bird Fest has celebrated the birds, the arts and the agriculture of the Creston Valley. Our festival returns May 10th, 11th and 12th, 2019, for its 7th year with events including guided bird-watching and kayaking tours, a photography workshop, nature field trips and presentations.  Dr. David Bird, retired University of McGill instructor and well respected ornithologist will be giving the key note address on Saturday night, May 11.  Join us in hosting this very special event.  

With your sponsorship, you will contribute to one of the most popular tourist draws to Creston this year. Over 260 people attended the bird festival in 2018 with over 150 from out of town supporting local accommodations, art studios, farms, and businesses in the valley. The festival attracts more people every year. You will be encouraging people of all ages and abilities to explore and enjoy the Creston Valley’s unique ecology and diverse birdlife.

In return, we will recognize you in our marketing materials and through event promotions. Please review our sponsor categories on Page 2 and select the option that works best for you. I will be happy to speak with you in person about the impact your sponsorship makes on this special community event.

Thank you.
