Free Virtual Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival
Thursday, January 13, 2022 - January 16, 2022
6:00 AM - 10:00 PM
Price: FREE - donations appreciated online

By now, you may have heard that the in-person 2022 Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival festival (MBWBF) was canceled by our parent organization, Morro Coast Audubon Society (MCAS). This decision was incredibly difficult and heartbreaking. We quickly pivoted to a virtual festival and reached out to our extremely talented and dedicated festival leaders. The response was amazing, so we bring to you, the 'Flying By The Seat of Our Pants' Virtual Bird Festival.

If you need a bit of bird inspiration, grab a snack, your favorite beverage
