Audubon Mississippi is excited to announce that we will be hosting The second annual Least Tern Arrival Festival (Tern Fest), hosted by Audubon Mississippi, features educational booths, children’s crafts and games, and food vendors. Attendees will learn about the ecology, threats, and conservation of Least Terns as they visit booths and vendors.

Audubon Mississippi hopes that Tern Fest will not only welcome in Mississippi’s charismatic, summer residents – the Least Terns, but also residents and tourists alike! This festival is a celebration of our heritage: the unique culture, economy, ecology that makes up the coastal Mississippi spirit. Mississippi hosts one of the largest nesting concentrations of Least Terns in the world. Certainly, nowhere else will you have the same opportunity to see so many birds nest on the beach in a single area! We hope to see you there! Rain or shine.
