Copper River Delta Shorebird Festival

The Copper River Delta Shorebird Festival was established in 1990 by the United States Forest Service. Beginning as a two-day workshop, the festival emphasized research networking. The Copper River Delta Shorebird Unit, comprised of participating researchers, became part of the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network (WHSRN), a coalition of more than 240 organizations in North and South America whose mission is shorebird conservation. Over the years the festival has grown into a world-class birding event including birding excursions, educational presentations and sightseeing through the efforts of the Cordova Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the USFS, Prince William Sound Science Center, local businesses and enthusiastic and knowledgeable community volunteers.
