Festival Dates: May 17-20, 2012 (Today is day 3 of 4)
Come bird with us the
third weekend in May, and discover the natural beauty of North Central
Washington state. The Leavenworth area features spectacular habitats
ranging from snow-capped mountains to sunny ponderosa pine forests, to
lush riparian zones, to shrub-steppe. All our field trips are led by
experts and professionals in their field. Learn about the wide variety
of migratory birds that come here for a brief, but important part of
their year: the breeding season. Hear the songs sung only during the
breeding season while you stroll, bike, boat, or van during the height
of wildflower season. While birding is the heart of the weekend,
activities also include wildflower walks, arts events, and family
activities to ensure fun and learning for everyone, and for birders of
all skill levels, with enough built-in "down time" to explore the
friendly Bavarian village that we call home.
This will be our 10th Annual Leavenworth Spring Bird Fest, and we are planning some special events!
Please click our EVENTS tab for a PDF of the 2011 Program of Events. See the "Bird Fest At A Glance"
page to quickly see what types of events are offered. The festival,
though not exactly the same from year to year is similar. Checking what
is offered, along with the species lists below, which are divided by
area and field trip, will give you a good place to start planning for
All manners of recreational and educational activities for birders. More info from: www.leavenworthspringbirdfest.com
