Point Reyes Birding & Nature Festival

April 19, 2024 April 21, 2024

The Environmental Action Committee of West Marin (EAC) will be hosting the 15th Annual Point Reyes Birding & Nature Festival April 19–21, 2024.

This annual fundraising event celebrates spring bird and wildlife migrations along the Pacific Flyway in Marin and Sonoma counties and benefits our nonprofit mission to protect and sustain the unique lands, waters, and biodiversity of West Marin (coastal Marin County). There is something for everyone in your brood, with trips and activities for various ages and experience levels.

Point Reyes National Seashore provides the main backdrop for our festival, which offers some of the finest birding in the United States with over 70,000 acres of habitat including estuaries, grasslands, coastal scrub, and forest with a strong influence from the Pacific Ocean. In fact, Point Reyes and the surrounding area have been named the National Audubon Society’s #1 birding hotspot for multiple years, where 54% (490 of 900 species) of all North American bird species have been seen and recorded. In addition, during April, California’s Mediterranean climate allows us to see wintering and breeding birds overlapping along this coastal hotspot. However, birds are not the only thing you’ll see. Whether you are at a field event discovering whales, elk, or wildflowers, your time in between may have you come across a plethora of wildlife including deer, fox, skunk, raccoons, otters, river otters, and more! Be sure to keep an eye out, and drive slowly!

Keynotes to be announced. Tickets on sale typically in February. EAC members receive early bird registration one week in advance of the public and special discounts. Learn more and sign up to be an EAC member for early bird registration and waived registration fees.
