Each year, exhibitors, community groups, volunteers, scientists, students and park rangers get together at Muir Woods to celebrate birds in fun and engaging hands-on activities for all ages. At Muir Woods, exhibitors such as Chico State, Nature Sound Society, Golden Gate Audubon Society, Wildcare and many more engage international and national visitors in inactive displays of birds, habitat, and other wildlife that share our world. Sequioa, the live, Wildcare-rescued northern spotted owl takes center stage along with story-telling and tours in Spanish. This is a Redwood Creek Watershed-wide celebration with a Migration Mobile that shuttles visitors from place to place. At Muir Beach the Golden Gate Parks Conservancy leads a habitat restoration project, local residents lead bird walks, and the NPS and Golden Gate Audubon lead beach cleanups. Visitors get up close and personal with wild birds as Point Blue researchers demonstrate mist-netting and bird-banding as a part of their long-term songbird monitoring program. Children of all ages make bird masks, bird nests, and learn to draw birds with guidance by the San Francisco Scientific Illustrators Guild. Fun, comraderie and a love of birds is the order of the day for this annual celebration of border-less protection of birds.
