June 1st - 2nd, 2024

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 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.
