LTBF scope at observation platformFlock to Taylor Creek Visitor Center for the annual Lake Tahoe Bird Festival on Saturday, June 11, 2016 from 10 am to 3:30 pm.

The Tahoe Institute for Natural Science, in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit (LTBM), invites everyone to this free event for fun and educational walks, workshops, educational activities and live bird demonstrations.

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.

All of the festival activities, except for the 8am off-site bird walk, are located at the Taylor Creek Visitor Center in South Lake Tahoe. Participating agencies include the US Forest Service, Lahontan Audubon Society, and presentations by Falconer Marie Gaspari-Crawford. Planning is underway for interactive family fun activities!
