Head to the Olympic Peninsula for supreme spring birdwatching! The annual Olympic 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, whale watching trips from the John Wayne Marina (courtesy of Puget Sound Express), featured speakers, presentations, workshops, live auction, gala banquet and more.

Join one of several three hour cruise “field trips” out to Protection Island National Wildlife Refuge from the John Wayne Marina in Sequim, Washington. Plus, additional field trips are planned for the Port Angeles Harbor, Dungeness Bay, Ediz Hook, Dungeness Spit and the Elwha River. 

In addition, because Sequim is the ancestral home of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe (a partner of the non-profit Dungeness River Nature Center).  There will be a tour explaining traditional Northwest Coast totemic art (totem poles, masks, and signage) at the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Center and their Seven Cedars Resort properties will also be offered. See https://library.jamestowntribe.org/home for more information about the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, including Zoom presentations on numerous topics.

Explore the many area hot spots for birdwatching, including Protection Island. Other birding tops spots are the 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.
