10th Annual Anniversary of
Point Reyes Birding and Nature Festival
April 26th-28th, 2019

Grab your brood and come celebrate our 10th Anniversary of the Festival with keynote speaker Kenn Kaufman. Kaufman is a lifelong naturalist, and the the originator and editor of the Kaufman Field Guides series. His fascination with birds developed at the age of six, and he went on to become one of the world’s best-known bird experts, but his interests extend to every area of nature. Learn more and stay tuned for our special Kaufman dinner, walk and keynote programming in 2019.

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 attendees choose from 50+ educational field outings and classroom-based events based in Marin and Sonoma counties, and 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 birders. The festival engages birders, artists, and nature lovers by providing quality birding and nature experiences and workshops. Our experienced guides have extensive knowledge of birds and the habitat unique to Marin-Sonoma counties. The festival is open to a variety of ages and experience levels. Additionally, the festival features Friday and Saturday evening programs with keynote speakers to for adults to meet, mingle, eat, drink and enjoy keynote presentations by top biologists and naturalists!
