We invite you to join the mass migration of Pacific shorebirds, raptors, waterfowl and songbirds.  Their shoreside respite is framed against the pristine backdrop of coastal glaciers and mountains, the breathtaking vista that we call home.  Come armed with your binoculars, spotting scopes, cameras, sketch books and pencils and leave with a heart full of memories.

Included in Festival Registration.

Empathy is the ability to perceive, share, and understand some other living being's feelings, and caring for others’ experiences, and perhaps empathy is the key to conserving our planet. Having the ability to make others’ life experiences our own is the most effective way to care for them. In this presentation, César discusses his life experiences and how they coincide with the shorebirds, and how, from his perspective, the distance between humans and birds is closer than some amino acids in the DNA strand.
