Puget Sound Bird Fest!
Puget Sound Bird Fest is coming up, September 12-14, and you won't want
to miss this year's celebration of birds and nature in Edmonds. The
festival begins Friday evening, at the Edmonds Conference Center, 201
Fourth Avenue North, with the "On Wing" art show artists' reception at
6:30 pm and Bird Fest keynote speaker wildlife artist Bart Rulon at 7:30
pm. Everyone is welcome and no registration is required.
Bird Fest gets going again early Saturday morning, with a 2-hour birding
cruise on Puget Sound, hosted by members of the Edmonds Yacht Club.
Pre-registration is required for this, and a few other field trips on
Sunday. All other Bird Fest activities are free. Saturday has a full
schedule of speakers, at the Frances Anderson Center, 700 Main Street,
including three live raptor presentations by Sarvey Wildlife Center.
There will be a special children's activity area on Saturday, also in
the Frances Anderson Center.
Next door in the Plaza Room you'll find registration, hospitality, and a
Marketplace of vendors and exhibitors. There will be arts and crafts
for sale including pottery, glass, felt hats, photography, decorated
birdhouses, and much more. Just outside the door you can find the right
plants for your backyard habitat at our native plant sale. When you get
hungry, it's a short walk to a variety of fine restaurants and cafes in
If you don't have time on Saturday to shop, you can come back Sunday to
the Plaza Room. And don't forget to pick up a map and go on the
self-guided tour of Backyard Wildlife Habitats around Edmonds! There is
so much to do at this wonderful community festival that you owe it to
yourself to visit the website and view the complete schedule at
