On Saturday, May 12, Audubon Connecticut and the Cove Island Park Conservancy will host a groundbreaking ceremony and an International Migratory Bird Day celebration from 1:00-4:00pm in the park.

To increase awareness about migration and help enhance stopover habitat, Audubon Connecticut and the Cove Island Park Conservancy are working with local school students to create a special songbird demonstration garden for the popular playground area in Cove Island Park. The garden, funded by the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, is the first in a series of “Urban Oases” sites being established throughout Connecticut. It is also part of a larger effort by the Cove Island Park Conservancy and Audubon to enhance habitats throughout Cove Island Park, a National Audubon Society designated ‘Important Bird Area’ that is known for its value as a critical stop-over area for birds migrating along the Atlantic Flyway.
