Shorebird and Nature FestivalMay 6-8, 2016
For many years, people have flocked to Grays Harbor in late April and early May to witness the shorebird migration spectacle. Grays Harbor Audubon Society, Grays Harbor NWR, the City of Hoquiam and a host of local sponsors work together to produce the annual Shorebird and Nature Festival. This event provides a chance for people from near and far to learn more about shorebirds and this unique area.
Festival events include field trips, lectures, workshops, a birder's market place, a nature fun fair, a banquet, guided walks and a community day. On Friday evening, the 2016 festival keynote speaker will be Robert Pyle, who will present "West-Side Butterflies: Rainforest to Rainshadow." There will also be a speaker at the dinner on Saturday evening. Proceeds from the Festival support Festival events and programs at the Refuge.
