Meals

Groups sizes

Refund Policy

There is a “No Refund” policy for events after May 01, 2024. If you must cancel, please accept our thanks and consider it a donation to the sustainability of the festival. In the event that Creston Valley Bird Festival organizers must cancel an event, a full refund will apply.

Be Weatherwise

Events go ahead rain or shine. Bring your binoculars, camera, good walking shoes (we are off-pavement at the BirdFest), sunscreen, water, snacks or lunch in case your bird sightings keep you out longer than expected.  Also a jacket for the field trips; it can be chilly in the early mornings and evenings.

Waitlist

Occasionally, someone registered for an event has to cancel and spaces open up. If you'd like to be waitlisted for a particular event, click here to send us an email. We'll let you know if a space becomes available, but don't expect to hear from us otherwise.
