About Indiana Dunes Birding Festival

The Indiana Dunes Birding Festival occurs along the shores of Lake Michigan to celebrate the area’s rich biodiversity and bird-watching opportunities. Activities include nearly 60 guided carpool and van tours to view migrating birds, vendor marketplace, more than 50 bird-related programs, from live raptor talks to species ID workshops, and special workshops for new bird watchers and educators. In the evening there are excursions for owls, woodcocks and whip-poor-wills, and family-friendly “birds and brews” social events. The Saturday keynote presentation includes dinner, silent auction, and vendor marketplace. General early-bird registration begins in early March.
