Join ACR ecologist Emiko Condeso at the 11th Annual Point Reyes Birding and Nature Festival hosted by the Environmental Action Committee of West Marin.
Held on the last weekend of April, the festival celebrates spring bird and wildlife migrations along the Pacific Flyway. Point Reyes National Seashore provides the backdrop for the festival, where the Pacific Flyway, Pacific Ocean, and other influences provide an ideal location for birding and wildlife viewing.
