Grays Harbor Shorebird Festival


Friday Early Location: Friday until 3PM Grays Harbor National Wildlife Refuge Office on Airport Way
Late Friday- Sunday Location: Hoquiam High School, Hoquiam WA.

Each spring, hundreds of thousands of shorebirds stop to rest and feed along the Washington Coast and in the Grays Harbor estuary during their migration northward. Coming from as far south as Argentina, these Arctic-bound shorebirds are among the world's greatest migrants. The concentration of birds during spring migration offers people a great chance to view a number of shorebird species. The shorebird spectacle happens every year at Grays Harbor National Wildlife Refuge and in other parts of the county.

People from around the world come to view this event of hemispheric importance. The festival works to bring people together for this incredible natural phenomenon. Contact Jennifer Cutillo, 360-753-9467.
