Southwest Utah habitats can attract over 375 species of birds during the
year. The habitats range from desert, forest, and riparian. During the St.
George winter months many waterfowl migrate through and stop at our
lakes and reservoirs. Raptors especially, find this region an ideal location
for the cold months. Whether you are a beginner or longtime birder, you
will find many attendees that are eager to share their experiences and
enthusiasm for birding.
Participants can attend any of the Festival’s multiple presentations, workshops
or field trips for a minimal $5.00 - 3 day general admisson pass per
person (children 17 & under are free). All the activities, except for the
evening presentations, are based at Tonaquint Park and Nature Center.
In between all the activities, guests can browse through the Dixie Arizona
Strip Interpretive Association’s bookstore, grab a snack or hot drink,
or purchase a 2013 St. George Winter Bird Festival collectible event t-shirt
or hat at the Red Cliffs Audubon Society’s booth.
