The 2012 Puget Sound Bird Fest is set for Friday through Saturday, celebrating birds and nature in Edmonds.
The festival’s mission is to increase awareness of species of birds that spend all or part of their lives in the Puget Sound region, and especially the environs of Edmonds.
The three-day event includes speakers, guided walks, land and water-based field trips, exhibits and educational activities for children and adults.
