Birders like to go to birding festivals in other locations, which can sometimes be expensive. Fortunately, there is a local birding festival coming up sponsored by the Evansville Audubon Society.
The Ohio Valley Birding Festival is an Evansville Audubon Society event featuring guided spring migratory birdwatching hikes in southwestern Indiana and western Kentucky along with family friendly birding activities at John James Audubon Park in Henderson, Kentucky. You can find more information about the schedule of hikes and other events at http://www.ohiovalleybirdingfestival.org/.
