September 5 - 7, 2014

Puget Sound Bird Fest is a celebration of birds and nature. Our mission is to increase awareness of species of birds that spend all or part of their lives in the Puget Sound region, and especially the environs of Edmonds. Residents and visitors will have opportunities to observe birds in their native habitats, and learn about ways in which habitat for birds and other wildlife can be preserved and restored in urban and suburban areas. There is something for everyone at Puget Sound Bird Fest.


Starlight Beach Walk

Join our Ranger Naturalists and WSU Snohomish County Beach Watchers for a low tide beach walk under the stars on a winter's evening. Bring a flashlight and dress for the weather. Meet at the Olympic Beach Visitor Station.

We'll explore the beach as the tide goes out and then return to the Visitor Station for some hot chocolate to take the chill off!

Co-sponsored by Snohomish County Marine Resources Advisory Committee.
