CANCELLED!


We at Lincoln City Audubon care deeply about the health and well-being of all of our constituents, friends, and visitors. With these thoughts in mind, we have decided to cancel our 2020 Festival. See you next Spring!

Birds Connect Our World
World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) is a worldwide education program that celebrates the migration of birds between their nesting habitats and wintering grounds. Because these flights can stretch thousands of miles across our oceans, the birds rely heavily on our rich habitat: the Rocky Shores, Estuaries, and Forested Headlands of Lincoln and Tillamook counties.

Everyone will have a chance to win fun doorprizes plus you'll have a chance to purchase raffle tickets for donated boat tours, lodging, and other local treasures!

This year, we've taken the international theme, "Birds Connect Our World," and are applying it to the connections between key coastal habitats: Rocky Shores, Estuaries, and Forested headlands. These habitats provide vital resources for migrating and resident birds and other wildlife. It's up to us to enjoy, share, and protect them!
  1. ● Rocky Habitat: We will show you some of our most interesting rocky shores, walk you (virtually) through beautiful tidepools, and talk about how we can be better stewards of these critical resources.
  2. ● Estuaries: We will bring in experts to talk about our estuaries, especially focusing on the eelgrass that is so critical to life in these special places.
  3. ● Forested Headlands: Our friends from US Forestry out of Hebo will show you our massive forests that reach from the Coast Range to the sea.

ACTIVITIES


Perch Wildlife Education will bring their "Close Encounters" presentation with live raptors. A panel of experts will speak and answer questions about our rocky habitat, estuaries, and forests. We will have activities for children and adults, theme-related artwork, and door prizes. Donated items such as pelagic outings, restaurant vouchers, and more will be available for raffle.
