April 13, 2023 – April 16, 2023
The Olympic Birdfest provides participants the opportunity to view a wide variety of birds normally seen on the Olympic Peninsula. Field trips are planned for Sequim Bay, Port Angeles Harbor, Ediz Hook, Dungeness Spit, and the Elwha River, as well as trips through wooded areas to view songbirds. A boat trip to Protection Island is also planned. The North Olympic Peninsula is widely known as a great place for bird atching. The day of the Olympic BirdFest is timed to overlap wintering birds and the beginning of spring migration.
In addition to the field trips, birders may participate in presentations, workshops, and a banquet with Keynote Speaker Dr. Deborah Jensen, Executive Director of Audubon Washington. A tour explaining the Jamestown S’Klallam tribal totem poles at the Tribal Center and the Seven Cedars Casino will also be offered.
The Olympic BirdFest is a partnership of the Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, Dungeness River Nature Center and Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe. Proceeds from this festival help support the educational programs of the Dungeness River Nature Center.
Registration will open in January 1, 2023.
