The Berkeley Bird Festival, is a free “All Day All Berkeley” public event to honor and celebrate our local birdlife through bird-themed activities; including birding field trips, family-friendly art and craft activities, chalk art and a lecture/performance series “Winged Wonderment”.

Organized by Golden Gate Bird Alliance and California Institute for Community, Art and Nature (California ICAN) and sponsored by the UC Berkeley Chancellor’s Community Partnership Fund and the City of Berkeley, the idea of this festival is to recognize the inherent beauty found in our avian neighbors and to expand and invigorate the environmental movement to protect birds, other wildlife and our own human communities.
