Our Festival provides a diverse selection of events reflecting the diversity of birds, habitats, wildlife, native plants, culture, and heritage found in our unique region. We offer a multitude of specialized programs led by expert local and regional ornithologists, biologists, botanists, naturalists, historians, and American Indians. Each special subject matter can be explored in totality or samplings can be taken from several.
