Early Registration Opportunity For Pt. Reyes Birding Festival

The 2016 Pt. Reyes Bird Festival is April 22 to 24, 2016 Festival Highlights
It is three days over Earth Day weekend to get outside and enjoy the bounty of the Spring Migration in Point Reyes!  This year’s festival features over 45 events where participants will see migrating seabirds, waterfowl, resident and migrant land birds, raptors, alcids, and owls.  In addition to the unique birding opportunities, there are stunning wildflower displays, butterflies, dragonflies, migrating whales, elephant seals, sea lions, and Tule elk!

We will post our preview schedule on February 1st on our registration page.  We are bringing back several of our most popular field events and have added some new items.

The Point Reyes Birding and Nature Festival is the major fundraiser for this local grassroots environmental nonprofit based in Point Reyes Station, CA.  The EAC is dedicated to the protection and appreciation of West Marin’s wild lands, wildlife, wilderness, watersheds, and rural character.  The annual festival provides an opportunity for the public to explore and enjoy the bounty of wildlife the public lands of Marin County have to offer.  By becoming a member of the EAC you empower our voice to speak on behalf of local conservation efforts.

Featured Speaker Events
Don’t miss out on our Friday and Saturday night programs.

Ron Le Valley will discuss “Our Changing Ocean” at our Friday night dessert and wine reception.  His keynote will address the changes of a warming ocean, pollution levels, increasing levels of Carbon Dioxide, and how they affect our local climate and currents.  These changes could result in alterations of species distribution, and seasonal trends of marine mammals, and birds.

Paul Bannick will take our Saturday night banquet audience on a brand new presentation featuring a visual and auditory exploration of the habitats of North American owls and woodpeckers that most define and enrich these places.  This photographic field report celebrates the ways the lives of these iconic birds are intertwined, their role as keystone, and indicator species for their environment.  Paul will share striking new images, videos, and stories that provide fresh illumination  to the themes of his The Owl and Woodpecker book.  Find out his latest discoveries since the release of the book, and information on his newest title, Woodpeckers of North America.
