April in the Redwoods

Godwit Days Spring Migration Bird Festival

Celebrate the Marbled Godwit!  This shorebird comes to the Humboldt Bay, as part of its migration, and numbers in the thousands.  But this festival is also about all the many birds and the beauty that the Redwood Coast has to offer.  A week-long event that features lectures, tours and field trips all throughout Humboldt County.  The website offers all the activities and the opportunity to sign up for guided tours on-line.

The Redwood is a proud member of the Audubon Society.
