CANCELED – Olympic Peninsula Birdfest
April 17 - April 19
Head to the Olympic Peninsula for supreme spring birdwatching! The annual Olympic Peninsula BirdFest — located in the Port Angeles, Washington area — coincides with the timing of wintering birds and the beginning of spring migration on the Olympic Peninsula. Serious birders can partake in guided birding trips, boat trips, presentations, workshops, live auction, gala banquet and more.
The 2020 featured speaker is Scott Pearson, a researcher in Ecology, Marine Biology and Zoology at the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife at the University of Washington and author.
Take field trips to many area hot spots for birdwatching – Port Angeles Harbor, Ediz Hook, Dungeness Spit, Sequim Bay, the Elwha River, Salt Creek and Neah Bay. Then head to the woods and water for seabird, songbird and owl spotting.
Join the festival pre-trip: a three-day, two-night birding/sightseeing cruise of the San Juan Islands, April 14-16, 2020 or extend your festival with our Neah Bay post-trip on April 19-21, 2020: three days exploring northwest coastal Washington.
