Indiana Dunes Birding Festival
May 16 - May 19
The Indiana Dunes Birding Festival is an annual event hosted by Indiana Audubon, in conjunction with the National Park Service and Indiana State Parks that showcases the abundance of migratory birds in the Indiana Dunes.
Birding in the Indiana Dunes is the best the state has to offer. With its rich biodiversity, varying habitats and miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, the Indiana Dunes is a hotspot for migrant birds. The annual Indiana Dunes Birding Festival is held to celebrate the dunes area’s various birding habitats and bird watching opportunities to create a positive impact on the economic, conservation, and environmental education for visitors and residents to the Indiana Dunes region. The four day event features over 100 field trips, presentations, workshops, and more. Evening Birds and Brews social events, a migration marketplace, native plant sale, art exhibition, and youth and family birding day also make the event a full birder’s experience.
