Godwit Days Spring Migration Bird Festival

April 15 - April 17


The 2022 Godwit Days will be held at the peak of spring migration and celebrates the thousands of shorebirds that flock to the shores of Humboldt Bay. Arcata is nestled between Humboldt Bay and Redwood forest, providing access for day trips to see Northern Spotted Owl, Marbled Murrelet, Western Snowy Plover, Black Oystercatcher, Ruffed Grouse, and other North Coast specialties.  Explore the lush Redwood Coast, expansive mudflats, wild river valleys, and rocky ocean coast in the Klamath bioregion in northwest California.

The 2022 Godwit Days Spring Migration Birding Festival will be offering a hybrid event in 2022 that will include virtual and in-person activities. Field trips, lectures, and workshops will be led by experienced local guides. In addition there will be a  keynote speaker.
