Sad news. Cape Arago Audubon has reluctantly decided it is time to put the Oregon Shorebird Festival to rest, after 34 successful runs. Once upon a time, we had truly awesome shore birding here in the fall, but that has changed radically in the last 15 years. People who come from afar expect to see a variety of shorebirds, which we can no longer guarantee.

We are exploring a replacement festival, but it can’t be put together for this year. To those interested in helping plan and organize a new festival on the south coast, please let us know. We will need the volunteers.
