Southwest Wings waives registration fee for select programs

This year the 18th Annual Southwest Wings Birding & Nature Festival’s free programs will be open to the public. The festival will be held in Sierra Vista Aug. 5-9.

Any resident or visitor can attend without paying the $15 festival registration fee. Among the 24 free programs are Cochise County’s National Wildlife Refuges with Bill Radke; Nectar Feeding Bats with Ronnie Sidner; Hummingbirds 101 with Tom Wood; and Nest Box Building with Mike Guest.

The free programs are held in the conference room of the Windemere Hotel. Since it has ample capacity, pre-registration is not required for the free programs. Some lectures have an associated field trip for which there is a registration fee and a charge.

The keynote address will feature Kenn Kaufman, who will talk about bird migration from the migrating bird’s point of view. Kaufman has led birding tours on seven continents and has taught birding workshops in 45 of the 50 states. Note: The keynote address is not a free program.

Check the full schedule of the Southwest Wings Birding and Nature Festival for more information and to make reservations for any of the workshops that require a fee.
