Come Celebrate Our 18th Annual Festival!
Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival, January 17-20, 2015
MORRO BAY, CALIFORNIA – Come to where the birds are and join Morro Coast Audubon Society (MCAS) for our 18th Annual Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival. Located on California’s scenic Central Coast, Morro Bay is an important stop on the Pacific Flyway and one of the country’s pre-eminent birding spots. The area is recognized worldwide for its diversity of both resident and wintering birds, and at last year’s festival, over 200 species of birds were identified!
The Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival is sponsored by MCAS and gives you the chance to join local and national birding experts on a variety of field trips and workshops. Field trip group sizes are limited to maximize spotting and identification opportunities. The festival also offers workshops aimed at sharpening your birding skills, as well as evening programs with outstanding speakers.
Our keynote speaker Saturday January 18th will be Garrett Kimball, Ornithology Collections Manager at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. He will present a program entitled “But It Doesn’t Look Like the One in the Book.”
To register and for more information about the Festival, check out our website at www.morrobaybirdfestival.org. Registration starts on November 2 and our brochure will be available then. The deadline is January 6, 2014 but early signups are encouraged as the most popular events fill up quickly.
