Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival 2021 was Hybrid,
both live and Virtual
and reaching more birders than ever around the world
Looking forward to 2022

Alaska’s largest wildlife viewing festival honors the return of spring and the breathtaking migration of shorebirds through Kachemak Bay.

The Friends of Alaska National Wildlife Refuges and Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge welcome local Alaskans, Visitors, and of course, shorebirds back to Kachemak Bay every year to mark this favorite spring-time celebration.  Our Festival continues to be a homegrown success in its 29th year because of local involvement, protected lands, and passionate birders like you.

YES, it is happening,  yes, it will be a bit different. The Shorebird Committee has planned a 'Hybrid' Festival for 2021.  Both Live & Virtual.  We've all learned so much about how to hold live events safely and reach even more people with a virtual platform as well.  The Keynote Speakers and workshops that will be offered will be educational, inspirational and fun for people of ALL ages and abilities. The Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival continues to offer guided events showcasing the wonder of the shorebirds’ migration and the awe-inspiring landscape of Kachemak Bay to  folks from near and far.  Join us in celebrating our vibrant community, birds, public lands, arts and ecosystems.

It takes an entire community to successfully sponsor 29 years of conservation education. The Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival could not happen without the dedication of countless volunteers, sponsors, and enthusiastic attendees. Thank You and Happy Birding!
