Event Dates and Times
On Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, more than 500 birders will visit Morro Bay, California (a Globally Important Bird Area), to see, photograph, and learn about birds. Morro Bay offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, a federally protected estuary, plenty of beaches, parks and museums, and best of all, thousands of birds. Approximately 200 species are sighted each festival.

The 2022 Festival features 160 events over 5 days, including master classes, pelagic cruises, birding by boat and kayak, bus and car trips throughout San Luis Obispo County, day hikes, and many informative workshops. Birders of all levels are welcome. Nature Track events (highlighted in turquoise on the Festival schedule) emphasize natural history and wildlife interactions, with less emphasis on bird identification.

Young adults and teens are encouraged to participate. Registration fee is waived for attendees aged 17 and under.
