eBIRD ranks the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary as the #1 spot for birding in No. California and #24 in all of the U.S. We offer numerous trips at this birders paradise throughout the festival. Be sure you sign-up for one!
This exciting festival includes a wide array of birding activities featuring field trips and workshops. Listen to fascinating lectures by acclaimed authors and naturalists, go on birding trips and view species in their natural habitats, enjoy kayaking trips and boat excursions. Held at the peak of spring migration, shorebirds abound and special opportunities are planned to see many other species, including Marbled Murrelet, Spotted Owl, and Snowy Plover.
The area offers a wide array of habitats and species for your observation and enjoyment. Our selection of over 100 small group field trips, lectures, workshops, boating excursions, and community activities are led by experienced local guides. Special pre- and post-festival birding trips that can extend your enjoyment to a full week are available.
