The Festival

The Red Cliffs Bird Fest showcases the habitat of Greater Zion during spring migration where the beauty of the birds is truly matched by the beauty of the scenery. Beginning in 2021, this festival has replaced the St. George Winter Bird Festival which typically took place in January of each year. The festival has moved to April when the weather is warming, most habitat is accessible, and everyone is eager to get outdoors. Field trips will combine birding with other outdoor activites for maximum enjoyment.
