Daily Planner 2017 Program

The program below is from the 2017 festival. We have left last year's program to give you an idea of the kind of events we offer.

You can also view the PDF of the Schedule/Calendar for 2017 and the PDF of the entire printed program for 2017.


Our mountain weather can be unpredictable. Even on a hot sunny day the weather conditions can change quickly. Please be 'wings weather wise' when attending field trips. We also recommend wearing sturdy walking shoes. Bring water, snacks or lunch. A camera and binoculars can enhance your experience!

Meeting place and/or driving directions will be forwarded in your booking confirmation email.
