This sounds like a cool event. I'll have to miss it this year. Last year I went to the Backyard Wildlife Festival in Tukwila with my family. We had so much fun! I couldn't believe the whole thing was free. We learned so much about small differences we can make in our own backyards. Anyhow, I stumbled on your blog and had to post my compliments. Luck w/ your event.
