Puget Sound Bird Fest
September 13 - September 15Free
Mark your calendars for an all new Puget Sound Bird Fest on September 13-15, 2019 in Edmonds, Washington. This beloved fall tradition is for nature lovers throughout the Pacific Northwest and features three days of speakers, guided walks, field trips, boat tours, exhibits, and educational activities for children and adults.
The 2019 event kicks off Friday evening with a keynote address by award-winning nature photographer and master birder Tim Boyer. His program Understanding Shorebirds, the Miracle of Migration is about the epic migrations of shorebirds. A whole new festival layout will make Saturday at the Frances Anderson Center more festive than ever before. Starting this year, all exhibits and activities will be grouped together in the gymnasium. Don’t miss engaging exhibits from around our region including WDFW, local Audubon chapters, artists, scientists, and select vendors, including a Kid’s Activity Area for hands-on exploration and an afternoon Live Raptor Presentation by Sarvey Wildlife Center.
For folks wanting to get outside, Bird Fest offers guided nature walks at parks and viewing stations in and around Edmonds, field workshops on bird identification, nature photography, wildlife habitat, and two boat cruises to choose from.
