Yakutat Tern Festival begins May 31

The Eighth Annual Yakutat Tern Festival is May 31-June 3, 2018. The festival is a celebration of the natural and cultural re-sources of Yakutat, Alaska. Yakutat hosts one of the largest and southernmost known nesting colonies of Aleutian Terns, as well as Arctic Terns and up to 200 other bird species that nest in, or migrate through the area. The festival is family friendly and offers activities for birders as well as non-birders, including field trips, seminars, kid’s activities, evening banquets, bird banding demonstration, and other programs.

Up-coming course for bird watchers in May:

May 10 Warblers - one evening course about warblers that are returning to Juneau.

All aspiring birders are encouraged to come learn and have fun!

This course is offered through Juneau Community Schools.

Register online at Juneau Community Schools or call 523-1761.
