Wings over Willapa Festival coming in September

The second annual Wings Over Willapa Festival takes place during the last weekend in September (26-29th) to connect people with birds, nature, and art in celebration of Willapa National Wildlife Refuge. Located on Washington State’s Long Beach Peninsula, they have a weekend full of guided tours, artist workshops, presentations, and fun-filled events. Whether you’re an experienced birder or just getting acquainted with the great outdoors, nature lovers of all ages are sure to find plenty to do.

  • Tours: Get your boots on the ground or float on the water and explore Willapa National Wildlife Refuge and other natural areas with expert guides.
  • Presentations: Learn about birding, wildlife, and ecology around Willapa from a variety of experts, with a little something for everyone
  • Saturday Night Keynote, Dinner, & Silent Auction: This catered evening features a keynote speaker, opportunities to bid on art, books, and much more.
  • Artist Workshops: Express your creative side in a series of nature-themed hands-on art workshops, and craft your own memento to take home.
  • Kids & Families: Activities abound for kids of all ages but we’ve picked those that are particularly suited for kids and families and made you a list.

The full schedule is on their website at https://wingsoverwillapa.org/events-shop/

Thayer birding software available free for young birder

As of now any young birder in school will be able to download the new version 7.7 of Thayer’s Birds of North America at NO COST. All others still need to buy the regular version. Thayer Birding Software founder, Peter W. Thayer, decided that this would be the perfect way to celebrate his 70th birthday.

You can get the software by using a Young Birder code, in our case use WillapaHillsAudubonYoungBirder where it asks for the promo code. Though be warned: The software package is huge, about 7.5GB and it will take a while to download depending on your internet connection.

Get the software at www.thayerbirding.com
