The CCAS BIRD Mart is a noisy, colorful, educational, exciting event.  Here the bird lover can become acquainted with hundreds of birds — not just viewing them — but talking to knowledgeable breeders about the birds’ characteristics and proper care.  CCAS offers an educational display of posters, brochures, photographs, collections and free “Pet Information Pages.”  There will also be a wide range of books, cages, food, toys, nest boxes — everything bird related.

CCAS sponsors these marts as part of a service and education program for people who love pet, cage and aviary birds.  Previous marts have sent thousands of dollars in support for bird conservation, education and research projects.

MONTHLY MEETINGS  Come join the fun and fellowship during our normal scheduled meeting time, 2nd  Sunday of the month at 2:00.  All meetings are free and open to non-members and located at the Fresno SPCA Education Center, 103 South Hughes unless otherwise noted.
