St. George Annual Winter Bird Festival

 

Every January, hundreds of wildlife and outdoor enthusiasts flock to St. George, Utah, to escape the cold and shake post-holiday blues. In Southern Utah, mild winter weather rarely thwarts birding efforts and with trees and shrubs devoid of leaves, it’s an ideal time to discover the 375 colorful bird species found in the area.

The St. George Winter Bird Festival is an event hosted by the Red Cliffs Audubon Society and Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.  Our mission is to intrigue and educate the public about these creatures by catering to both novice and expert birders with a variety of field trips, workshops, and presentations.  We provide information regarding our unique and diverse Washington County bird populations via interactive opportunities with photography, physical activity, and youth education.
The Winter Bird Festival is a non-profit organization, and proceeds continue to fund the annual event.  Some of our sponsors include St. George City, Hawkwatch, BLM, National Park Service, Home Depot, Click, and Red Cliffs Mall.
