Indiana Dunes Birding Festival
May 7-10, 2015
Various locations throughout the dunes
The Indiana Dunes Birding Festival is an annual event that showcases the abundance of migratory birds in the Indiana Dunes.
Birding in the Indiana Dunes is the best the state has to offer. With its rich biodiversity, varying habitats and miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, the Indiana Dunes is a hotspot for migrant and resident birds. The Indiana Dunes Birding Festival is an event designed to celebrate the dunes area’s various birding habitats and bird watching opportunities to create a positive impact on the economic, conservation, and environmental education for visitors and residents to the Indiana Dunes region.
The festival will include hikes, workshops, lectures, educational events, and more. The festival’s keynote speaker is James Currier, host of Nikon’s Birding Adventures, which airs on NatGeo Wild. Be sure to check out the festival’s event page to learn more about the lineup of events planned.
The Indiana Dunes Birding Festival is hosted by the Indiana Audubon Society whose mission is to promote birding throughout Indiana. For detailed information regarding birding locations, birdwatching tips and membership privileges, please visit http://www.indianaaudubon.org
