2012 Point Reyes Birding & Nature Festival A Tremendous Success!
Hundreds of birding enthusiasts from the Bay Area and all across the country, including New York, Mississippi, Texas, Montana and Washington, enjoyed EAC’s third-annual Point Reyes Birding & Nature Festival April 27th through 30th.
The 2012 Festival featured fabulous walks and presentations about birds, wildflowers, butterflies, dragonflies, native grasses, marine mammals, bats, and wildlife photography. Bolinas artist and naturalist Keith Hansen entertained a large crowd at the Inverness Yacht Club at the Friday evening dessert reception with a video of his carbon-free big year – all the birds and wildlife he saw while birding on foot or by bicycle in 2010. On Saturday early evening birders packed the Dance Palace for a happy hour and silent and live auctions. The evening dinner banquet didn’t disappoint with Pam Ferrari’s gourmet local, organic cuisine and an excellent, lively presentation by Jack Laws on our innate skills to perceive and observe nature and her many wonderful creatures.
We wish to extend a huge thank you to the many businesses, organizations, community members, and many volunteers who made this event an enormous success. The widespread generosity included auction item donations, cash sponsorships, 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!!
Hundreds of people attended the Festival, patronized our many wonderful local businesses, and learned about the inspiring array of local organizations working in West Marin, all while experiencing the magnificent natural wonders of the Point Reyes area.
Mark your calendars! The 4th Annual Point Reyes Birding & Nature Festival will be held Friday, April 26th through Sunday, April 28th 2013!
