Indiana Dunes Birding Festival
The Indiana Dunes Birding Festival is an annual event hosted by the Indiana Audubon Society that showcases the abundance of migratory birds in the Indiana Dunes.
Birding in the Indiana Dunes is the best the state has to offer. With its rich biodiversity, varying habitats and miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, the Indiana Dunes is a hotspot for migrant birds. The annual Indiana Dunes Birding Festival is held to celebrate the dunes area’s various birding habitats and bird watching opportunities to create a positive impact on the economic, conservation, and environmental education for visitors and residents to the Indiana Dunes region.
The 2020 Indiana Dunes Birding Festival has been cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are investigating ways we can deliver a hybrid (live and web-based) festival in 2021.
Please consider viewing the following promotional video (provided by Indiana Dunes Tourism) that highlights some of the best aspects of birding in the Indiana Dunes.
