Spring Wings Bird Festival

Spring Wings Bird Festival began in 1998 to celebrate the migration through the Lahontan Valley. The mission of the annual event is to develop and promote an entertaining community activity that can be enjoyed by residents and visitors to Lahontan Valley for the purpose of education and strengthening awareness of the importance of these unique wetlands to the Pacific Flyway and the entire Western Hemisphere. The Lahontan Valley wetlands are recognized as some of the most significant in the western United States.  They have been designated as a site of international importance by the Western Hemispheric Shorebird Reserve Network, as well as being named a “Globally Important Bird Area” by the American Bird Conservancy, and an Important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society. With the help of our volunteers, sponsors and partners, we provide guided tours, interesting speakers, a variety of presentations and workshops encompassing nature, cultural resources and art. There are extra special activities on Friday designed for local grade school students. The Festival truly delivers something for everyone.
