Birds of a feather will flock together at Taylor Creek Visitor Center this weekend for an annual celebration of migratory birds.
The Lake Tahoe Bird Festival takes place Saturday morning, June 11.
“Every year, (Tahoe Institute for Natural Science) partners with the U.S. Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit and many other agencies, organizations, and businesses, to bring the Lake Tahoe Bird Festival to Tahoe,” according to a description from the institute. “The event is one of hundreds of International Migratory Bird Day festivals celebrated throughout the Americas. The festival will teach the Tahoe community about the incredible journey that migratory birds take each year. Migratory birds travel thousands of miles between their breeding grounds and winter habitats! This is a day to support and increase awareness of conservation efforts while enjoying family-fun outdoor activities.”
The event includes bird walks, falconer presentations and talks on landscaping for birds and optics.
The festival takes place from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday at the U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit’s Taylor Creek Visitor Center. The festival also includes an off-site bird walk starting at 8 a.m.
Taylor Creek Visitor Center is located on Visitor Center Road off State Route 89, west of Camp Richardson.
