Yakima River Canyon Bird Fest
Name: Yakima River Canyon Bird Fest
Date: May 8, 2020 - May 10, 2020
Come bird with KEEN for 3-days during the second weekend of May and discover the natural beauty of Central Washington State! The Yakima River Canyon is an Audubon Important Bird Area (IBA) with some of the highest densities of passerines and birds of prey in the State. The Yakima River Canyon Bird Fest will offer expert-led field trips, vendors, extended field trips, lectures and keynote speakers, social events and music, and a plethora of bird watching during early spring! Yakima River Canyon Bird Fest will be a family-friendly event targeting birders throughout the Pacific Northwest and from around the world. Birders travel thousands of miles to add to their ‘life lists’ and our festival will fall right in between two complimentary festivals – the Grays Harbor Shorebird Festival in late April and the Leavenworth Bird Festival in late May. Birders plan their travel calendars to engage in as many birding opportunities as they can, and this festival in May is the best time to see colorful, diverse and rare bird species in the Canyon.
