Point Reyes Birding & Nature Festival: Saturday Youth & Family Programming

The Environmental Action Committee of West Marin (EAC) is proud to partner with Amigos Alados to bring FREE youth and family programming to the annual Point Reyes Birding & Nature Festival. Children 3 to 18 accompanied by their families are invited. The festivities will take place on the lawn at 65 Third Street, Point Reyes Station, California, from 10:00 to 2:00.

The Youth & Family Programming will kick off with a special live bird presentation from The Bird Rescue Center of Sonoma County. Docents will bring two Live Bird Ambassadors — (a resident owl and hawk, whose permanent disabilities have made them non-releasable). This is a rare and memorable opportunity to see these wild birds up-close, and learn about our native bird species, their fascinating adaptations and the essential roles they play in our local ecosystems.
