On Sunday, October 17, Bay Area residents are invited to enjoy the first annual Berkeley Bird Festival, a free community event organized by Golden Gate Audubon and the California Institute for Community Art and Nature (California I CAN). The event will offer guided birding field trips throughout the city, bird chalk art on the UC campus and downtown, family-friendly arts & craft activities including Origami bird folding instruction, bird-related information and action tables, and a very special virtual and in-person program – “Winged Wonderment” — an afternoon of bird stories, images, poems, songs, and demonstrations by writers, poets, birders, scientists, activists, artists, and bird-lovers broadcast live from the David Brower Center on Allston Way—the location for arts and crafts activities and information tables.
The event will take place all day, with some field trips starting as early as 8 a.m. and others ending as late as 6 p.m.. Some activities will require pre-registration. Brower Center activities will run from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. Indoor activity participants at the David Brower Center must show proof of vaccination and wear masks.
