About 60 people are expected to attend keynote speaker Noppadol Paothong’s address and dinner at the inaugural Prairies and Pineywoods BirdFest weekend, May 2 through 4, in Franklin County.
Advance registration was required for BirdFest. However, there are plenty of other free segments of the festival open to local residents and other visitors on Saturday. See the May 1 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for a listing of these activities.
