An Invitation from Wenatchee River Institute

Wenatchee River Institute invites you to come enjoy the 17th Annual Leavenworth Spring Bird Fest May 16th- 19th, 2019! It is our pleasure to host this amazing spring tradition and for our beautiful 9 1/2 acre campus to transform one weekend a year into “Bird Fest Central”.

A hidden gem nestled along the Wenatchee River in Leavenworth, Wenatchee River Institute is Leavenworth’s premier outdoor nature education center and your go-to for all things festival related! This year, thanks to our valued festival co-host, North Central Washington Audubon, we are excited to enjoy world renowned birder, author and photographer Richard Crossley ( Crossley Bird ID Guides). Come experience new and exciting trips exploring all the unique birding and beauty our region has to offer, or revel in top-notch art and photography.

All of the traditional favorites are here, complete with Leavenworth’s bavarian charm. Additionally, we are proud this year to offer Wenatchee River Institute members discounts on all festival offerings. Your membership keeps experiential learning in the natural world affordable and accessible for everyone in the community- and it helps keep the festival soaring! Don’t worry if your not a member… yet! Membership information will be available on Wenatchee River Institute’s webpage beginning Friday, February 8th.

Festival registration opens Tuesday, February 19th and the 2019 festival program is now available!

We can’t wait to bird with you!
