Olympic BirdFest Registration NOW OPEN!!!
The 16th annual Olympic Birdfest will take place this year on April 12-14, 2019.
We pride ourselves in having birding experiences that are personal and fun to attend. Just like in years past we have many options for you to view our local bird specialties with knowledgable local guides that know the lay of the land.
Along with birding, our banquet will be held at the spectacular Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Center on Sequim Bay and will feature John Marzluff, a James W. Ridgeway Professor of Wildlife Science at the University of Washington. The topic will be “Welcome to Subirdia”
If you like to get out on the water of our beautiful Puget Sound, you have the option of a 3 day cruise to the San Juan Islands, a 3 hour cruise to Protection Island or a 6 hour tour off the coast of Neah Bay. *Neah Bay only has 6 spots left and we can only guarantee a room through the end of February.
