2015 Pelagic Trip Tickets are on sale now! 

  This all-day cruise aboard the “New Sea Angler” will be an exploration of the pelagic zone that lies off the Sonoma and Marin coasts. Just after leaving Bodega Bay we will begin looking for migrating flocks of loon, scoter, and brant, while common murre and pigeon guillemot may dive near the boat. The destination is the Cordell Bank, a granitic underwater mountain off the Continental Shelf that rises to within 115 feet of the surface. Upwelling of nutrients and oxygen-rich water here fuel a rich food web that supports a varied assemblage of seabirds and marine mammals. The whole area is part of the Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary.   More information here.

The Point Reyes Birding Festival is a project of the Environmental Action Committee of West Marin, a dedicated and hard-working grassroots group founded in 1971 to protect West Marin’s natural environment and rural character. Please join us by supporting EAC.


Greening the Festival. To help save important bird habitat on the wintering grounds of neotropical migrants as well as to offset the energy used by people driving to the festival, we are making a donation to the reforestation program of the nonprofit Monteverde Conservation League in Costa Rica. Read about them and make your own additional donation if you wish.
