Festival Essentials

Held on the last weekend of April, the 9th annual Point Reyes Birding & Nature Festival celebrates the Year of the Bird, the 100th Anniversary of the Migratory Bird Act, spring migration, and West Marin’s unique biodiversity through educational engagement opportunities.

Point Reyes National Seashore provides the backdrop for our festival, where the Pacific Flyway, Pacific Ocean, and other influences provide an ideal location for birding and wildlife viewing. In fact, the area was named the #1 birding hotspot in 2017, where over 54% of all North American bird species have been recorded. 

Over the three day weekend over 400 attendees choose from 50+ educational field outings and classroom-based events focused on birds, wildlife, plants and marine life + hiking, biking, kayaking, art and field photography, and led by some of the Bay Area’s award-winning naturalists and birdersThese events are geared to bring a broader awareness, appreciation and stewardship of the area to novice and expert birders/naturalists alike.

The annual festival proceeds provide vital funding for our ongoing nonprofit mission, especially around our current programming to protect nesting birds in Marin and advocate for the integrity of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Sponsorship of the festival is a key way to ensure this important work continues. Plus, gifts will be matched up to $10,000! Show your West Marin love, become a Friend of the Festival today!
