You may remember our in-depth interview with Dianna Moore last year, a Shorebird Festival volunteer. You can revisit that here! So many volunteers help out throughout the festival to keep the tours staffed, the events booked and the fun alive. New this year is the Shorebird Procession. Bring a costume and join in the parade!
The festival kicks off officially April 26th and runs through April 28th. The weekend is packed with Key Note Speakers (Clay Taylor), lectures, a Birding Marketplace and of course tours and field trips. The annual fundraising Banquet and Auction is being held on Saturday night the 27th, the money raised is used to fund the next years festival and fund the AmeriCorps position at Grays Harbor National Wildlife Refuge.

If you have lived in the great PNW for longer than a minute, you know how important the clam is to the region. So important we dedicate entire festivals to the little creature. So it should come as no surprise that this weekend boasts the 7th annual Razor Clam and Seafood Extravaganza! Head out to the beach this weekend for a feast of clams, a chowder contest and the famous clam gun decorating contest!
Visit www.oceanshorschamber/clams.html for all the updates. It is shaping up to be a rain free weekend, so why not spend it at the shore, Ocean SHORES!
