 Southeast Arizona Birding Festival

EXPERIENCE SOUTHEAST ARIZONA BIRDING AT ITS BEST

Tucson, Arizona

August 11–15, 2016

Festival Program


 

We've refreshed the name of our Festival, previously known as the Tucson Bird & Wildlife Festival, to more accurately reflect the activities involved and also to highlight this festival as Tucson Audubon's signature event for birding in the region.  We invite you to join us and experience Tucson Audubon's Southeast Arizona Birding Festival this year!

In 2016, expect more opportunities to have a premier birding experience. We are expanding the number and types of field trips we offer, and broadening the capacity of our workshops.  You will hear from our keynote speaker, Jeff Gordon, President of the American Birding Association, and Sheri Williamson, hummingbird expert and founder of the Southern Arizona Bird Observatory. Rick Wright will also be back to give another series of workshops and lead a field trip.

You can enjoy social hours and dinners with other birders and visit our vendor fair. All activities will be based out of the Arizona Riverpark Inn, in Tucson, Arizona. Get to know our friendly local birding and conservation community and the dazzling array of birding experiences accessible from Tucson!

RichardCrossley"I loved my time at the Tucson Bird and Wildlife Festival in 2012. Southeast Arizona is always stunning but there's something about August, when the rains are underway and everything comes alive, that is extra special. The colors are spectacular, birds are everywhere - both locals and migrants and the biggest problem is just trying to fit everything in! With a wealth of local and visiting leaders, it's also a great place to socialize and learn lots. I'd love to be there again this year."

-Richard Crossley (2012 keynote speaker)
