Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival

May 3, 2023 May 7, 2023

Join birders from around the world for Alaska’s largest wildlife festival!

The Friends of Alaska National Wildlife Refuges welcome all festival participants. Located on the beautiful shore of Kachemak Bay, the Homer Spit is one of the most accessible places for shorebird viewing in Alaska. With over 100,000 shorebirds of 25 different species migrating through in early May, this five-day event celebrates the return of spring and migrating birds. The festival has great birds, excellent guiding, educational seminars and workshops, and children’s activities at all skill levels. For more information, visit our website.

We find hope in our shorebirds—as they migrate north and continue to gather along our shores.  Please check at this link: https://kachemakshorebird.org/ for new ways to connect with the Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival.
