March is the month to plan a trip to Blaine to take in the 18th Annual Wings Over Water festival. This festival has grown considerably in almost two decades, and many people see this year’s offering as the best way to welcome the first weekend of spring. A full slate of activities and events includes speakers, field trips, live raptor presentations, photography workshops, exhibits and displays, boat cruises, and a variety of activities for kids.
Opening will be on Friday evening with a full day of activities on Saturday. The festival ends with a birders’ breakfast presentation on Sunday morning at the Semiahmoo Golf and Country club.
By the time you read this, all the events and dates will have been posted on the festival’s website, so please take time to visit for more detailed info at www.wingsoverwaterbirdingfestival.com. There should still be time to sign up for events that require preregistration. Hope to see you there!
