Those of you who will be in the Grays Harbor region of Washington state next weekend should consider attending the Grays Harbor Shorebird Festival, April 29-May1.
The festival takes place at various locations, including the Grays Harbor National Wildlife Refuge, Ocean Shores, Westport, and Lake Quinault. Events include lectures, guided walks, and, of course, bird-watching (birding), and they range in focus for skill level from beginning to advanced. Even those who are just curious about the possibility of becoming birders will find activities fit for them.
At the very least, it's a great opportunity to get out and experience nature and see some cool birds.
