Where Will You Be in 45 Days?
We hope in Klamath Falls, Oregon, USA attending the 2010 Winter Wings Festival!
We have 3 full days of birding and nature-related activities scheduled for Presidents' Day weekend (Feb 12-14), including guided field trips, workshops, presentations, a packed line-up of photography activities, and free family fun. We're especially excited to have Scott Weidensaul, Bill Clark, and Rick Sammon joining us this year. Scott will provide the keynote presentation following the banquet on Saturday; his presentation is based on his book Living on the Wind: Across the Hemisphere with Migratory Birds, which was a finalist for the 2000 Pulitzer Prize in nonfiction.
The complete program and a PDF of the festival brochure are available at our web site:
Online registration is expected to go live at the web site either later this week or early next week. Be sure to keep your eyes on the site, as activities sell out quickly, some within just hours! Over 600 people registered for the festival in 2009. You can also register by mail; the registration form is posted on the web site as a PDF.
Over 100 species of birds can be found in the Klamath Basin of southern Oregon and northern California during winter. Six national wildlife refuges, covering nearly 200,000 acres, attract an impressive variety of waterfowl and raptors, many in astounding numbers. Whether you are a beginning birder, a life-long birding enthusiast, or a budding naturalist, there is something for you at the Winter Wings Festival in the Klamath Basin this winter!
