Where the river ends and the birding begins!
The Kenai Peninsula boasts pristine beaches, beautiful state parks, a fantastic wildlife refuge and, best of all, thousands of birds. This four-day festival is designed to showcase and celebrate peninsula birds for all ages and abilities. Suitable for the beginner as well as the advanced birder, the festival includes informative sessions, social gatherings and birding field excursions.
Our field excursions offer fantastic birding opportunities without going too far. We have a host of experts ready to take your birding skills to another level. Young birders can get involved through a variety of activities from creative artistic endeavors to hands-on field trips.
Regardless of age and ability, the festival offers a variety of opportunities:
