February 18, 2018, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. 

Included with Garden admission

An educational celebration of all kinds of birds, this annual event highlights the behaviors and physical traits that enable them to survive and thrive. Birdwatchers of all ages can flock to the Garden for a day filled with activities and information for both beginners and enthusiasts.

The Family Bird Fest features knowledgeable birding exhibitors including members of Pomona Valley Audubon Society and Wild Wings of California with live raptors. There will also be bird life displays, child-friendly crafts, and drop-in family activities. Visitors can help with the “Great Backyard Bird Count,” an international citizen-science project. The annual event engages people globally in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where birds are throughout the world.

Coopers HawkRancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden provides an ideal setting to spot birds that live here or migrate to the region for warmer winter living. Step softly to see them nestled amid ceanothus blossoms or high above in a cottonwood branch.

The 2018 Family Bird Festival is sponsored by Wild Birds Unlimited Claremont and the Pomona Valley Audubon Society.
