The Montezuma Audubon Center is teaming up with the Savannah Chamber of Commerce to host the 5th Annual Savannah Art Festival on Saturday, September 28 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The theme of this family-friendly event is Wild About Birds and Nature and will feature a variety of fun activities for everyone. ”The Montezuma Audubon Center is proud to partner with the Savannah Chamber of Commerce to present this wonderful celebration of nature and art,” said Chris Lajewski, Montezuma Audubon Center Director. “The Montezuma Audubon Center will serve as a beautiful backdrop for art demonstrations from Dr. Debbie Heit, Dr. Sue Lane, and Jim Montanus, food vendors, live music featuring The Forest Dwellers and Tom Barnes, artisans, mural painting by James Zeger, the Trashin’ Fashion Runway Competition, kids games and crafts, a photo contest, nature trails through 200 acres, and dozens of bird species. Late September is a great time to experience songbirds, waterfowl, and birds of prey in Montezuma’s forest, grassland and wetland habitats as they rest and refuel during their long and impressive journey.”

The Montezuma Audubon Center is located at 2295 State Route 89, Savannah, NY 13146. Festival admission is $5/person, $10/carload. Proceeds will benefit the Montezuma Audubon Center’s bird conservation projects and environmental education programs, and the Savannah Chamber of Commerce’s community improvement programs.
