Come bird with us, discovering the natural beauty and wonders of Central Washington!

Celebrate the return of migratory birds in the midst of peak wildflower season. Enjoy the excitement of birding field trips and workshops. Take in speaker events, music, visual art, picnics, and activities for all ages and abilities. All of this is happening in beautiful in Leavenworth, WA and throughout the Wenatchee River Valley.


Health and Safety Note:

With the ever-changing news related to the coronavirus, it is challenging to anticipate what things will be like in mid-May. Knowing we cannot predict the future, we have decided to move forward with Bird Fest registration as scheduled, starting on Tuesday March 17th at 6:00PM. As we get closer to May, if we need to cancel the event for the safety of the community, we will offer full refunds. The Wenatchee River Institute also has a very generous cancellation policy, which you can find below.

Refund and Cancellation Policy

If a registration is cancelled 30 days out, you will receive an 80 percent refund; less than 30 days out, a 50 percent refund; and less than two weeks out, no refund will be given. If we are able to fill your space with someone from the waitlist, or if you know someone who would like to take your place, you will receive a full refund minus a 10 percent processing fee.

Although we rarely need to do so, we reserve the right to cancel a program. In this case you will receive a full refund.

Membership fees are non-refundable.

As a non-profit organization, event registrations are incredibly important to us. We strive to keep the cost of Bird Fest and other WRI programming low. In the event that you are unable to attend, we hope you will consider donating your registration fees to support Wenatchee River Institute programs.
