Stikine River Birding Festival
April 29 - May 2
Stikine River Delta has the largest springtime concentration in North America of thousands of Bald Eagles. The festival is the perfect opportunity for adventurous birdwatchers to also observe millions of shorebirds, which migrate to the delta each spring. The Stikine River and its tributaries are located within the Stikine-LeConte Wilderness Area of the Tongass National Forest. Wrangell Stikine River Birding Festival celebrates the spring migration of Bald Eagles, Snow Geese, Sandhill Cranes, and thousands of shorebirds.
Events for all ages, including art and photo contests, build a feeder, guest speakers, and of course—an opportunity to explore the surrounding islands and Stikine River flats for birds!
