Dean Hall Woodpecker Festival
September 3, 2019$65 – $75
Organized by the East Cascades Audubon Society and started in 2011, the Dean Hall Woodpecker Festival is an opportunity to visit a beautiful area and enjoy our local birds. There are 11 nesting species of woodpeckers here and there is a good chance to see them all … as well as lots of other cool birds. The group keep things low key, fun and casual. Local birders lead the tours (at least 2 tour leaders per group) and group size is restricted by the Forest Service. Birders follow ethical birding practices, minimize play backs and have strict protocols about approaching nests. The festival is focused on field trips and meeting other birders. It is inexpensive and all people will car pool (arranged on the day of the tour). Participants provide your own lunch. The group takes participants to the birding spots and we all find the birds.
The East Cascades Audubon Society runs this festival and it is totally managed by volunteers. We want to share our enthusiasm, help you to see great birds, and have a fun time.
