2015 Point Reyes Birding and Nature Festival keynote speaker

This year, the Festival is pleased to announce Steve Howell as our keynote speaker for our Saturday Night Banquet. You won’t want to miss his presentation, “SHIFT HAPPENS: Rare (Vagrant) Birds in North America – Why, Where and Whence?”   Steve is one of North America’s premiere birders and bird scientists.  He is a senior international bird tour leader for WINGS, and author of several books, including A Guide to the Birds of Mexico and North Central America, Gulls of the Americas (with John Dunn), and recently released Petrels, Shearwaters, and Albatrosses of North America.  We hope you will join us for our Saturday Night dinner and keynote!

The Festival features fabulous walks and presentations about birds, wildflowers, butterflies, dragonflies, native grasses, marine mammals, bats, and wildlife photography. On Friday evening at the Inverness Yacht Club we have a wine and dessert reception with lecture presentation. On Saturday early evening birders enjoy for happy hour and silent auction. The evening dinner banquet is always delicious, featuring local, organic cuisine.

We wish to extend a huge thank you to the many businesses, organizations, community members, and many volunteers who have continued to make the Festival a great success. The widespread generosity includes auction item donations, cash sponsorship’s, donated baked goods for the Festival’s dessert reception, and discounts offered by our bakeries and delis to attendees during the Festival weekend. Thank you very much!!
