9th annual Point Reyes Birding & Nature Festival

Friday, April 27, 2018 - 6:00am to Sunday, April 29, 2018 - 2:00pm
Event Description: 

The Environmental Action Committee of West Marin (EAC) would like to invite you to join us for the 9th annual Point Reyes Birding and Nature Festival (April 27th-29th).Held on the last weekend of April, the festival celebrates the Year of the Bird, the 100th Anniversary of the Migratory Bird Act, spring migration, and West Marin's unique biodiversity through educational engagement opportunities. 

Point Reyes National Seashore provides the backdrop for our festival, where the Pacific Flyway, Pacific Ocean, and other influences provide an ideal location for birding and wildlife viewing. In fact, the area was named the #1 birding hotspot in 2017, where over 54% of all North American bird species have been recorded. 

Over the three day weekend over 400 attendees choose from 50+ educational field outings and classroom-based events focused on birds, wildlife, plants and marine life + hiking, biking, kayaking, art and field photography, and led by some of the Bay Area’s award-winning naturalists and birders. These events are geared to bring a broader awareness, appreciation and stewardship of the area to novice and expert birders/naturalists alike.
