Blue Jay Point is a Wake County park located in northern Raleigh. It is bordered on three sides by Falls Lake, Raleigh’s primary drinking water supply. Formerly agricultural land, the park habitat is mixed pine and hardwood forest with some open play fields and an environmental education center. The park hosts Songbird Celebration, an annual event celebrating the return of migratory songbirds and in honor of International Migratory Bird Day. It is a free festival for bird lovers of all ages, and a great outing for families, Scouts and other youth groups.
There are bird-related activities throughout the park, including games and crafts, preschool story times, bird hikes for adults and kids, learning stations and more. Every year Wake Audubon has a large display featuring crafts for children and information on our programs for all. Come with your family and enjoy the day.
We welcome you to volunteer with us to work with the children who visit the booth and to talk to parents about our family-friendly activities. We also lead three bird walks during the day. All of the volunteer opportunities are fun and helpful to the community.
Songbird Celebration is always held on the last Saturday in April. Check our calendar for exact date and time and contact us to volunteer.
