Our 2020 program planning is well underway with over 50 activities identified to date include birding, photography, and cultural trips, workshops, and presentations- half of which are new this year. We are so excited about our three keynoters that will be joining us over Presidents’ Day Weekend- national leaders in the birding and photography community. Also look for new programs on Golden Eagles, Swainson’s Hawks, American Kestrels, and Great Gray Owls for the birding participants and Bald Eagle photography and blinds photography for the photography participants as examples. For the non-birders or non-photography spouses, we have new cultural activities to acquaint you with the Klamath Basin including a planned ag tour. In summary, we couldn’t be more proud of the 2020 line-up! The complete 2020 program and schedule will be released around mid-November 2019. Online registration will begin the first week of December 2019 this year – a week earlier than usual. Plan to register early for the best choices.
The Winter Wings Festival is produced by Klamath Basin Audubon Society volunteers with support from sponsors, grants, and participant registration fees. Proceeds from this festival support local grants to teachers and other entities for outdoor education and community nature-related projects.
Typically the reported species at the festival number about 120 – 133. Here is our 2019 festival bird species count.
