Bird Fest is here!!!

For each of your Bird Fest field trips, classes, or workshops, remember to bring:

  1. Clothing and footwear that is appropriate for the day's specific weather (and check your trip-specific information for any particular notes)

  2. Any personal medications (inhaler, epipen, etc.)

  3. Water (enough for the duration of your trip) and lunch/snacks

  4. Sun protection

  5. Your binoculars/birding equipment

  6. Anything trip-specific that is listed in the trip description and information

We recommend arriving at Bird Fest Central -- or your alternative meeting location -- 15 minutes before the trip is scheduled to depart. 

Bird Fest Central is located at Wenatchee River Institute, 347 Division Street, Leavenworth, WA. Parking in our small lot is limited -- please give priority parking in the lot to those who need to be closer. Parking for trips is best on Commercial and 12th streets.

All participants need to fill out a waiver before participating in Bird Fest trips. The waiver is attached to this email if you'd like to fill it out ahead of time and bring it to Bird Fest with you. There will also be copies at Bird Fest Central or with your trip leader for trips departing from a different location.

There are some trips that still have open spots! If you're interested in signing up, check the online registration, stop by Bird Fest Central, or email birdfestinfo@wenatcheeriverinstitute.org. Keep an eye on the Leavenworth Spring Bird Fest Facebook page too; sometimes last minute openings will be posted there. There are also free events throughout the weekend.

 Bird Fest would not be possible without sponsors, and our sponsors are highlighted in this program. If you are looking for places to visit while in Leavenworth, check out our sponsors!

See you soon!
