JOIN US AS WE “BIRD THE VERDE”
In the spring our fancy turns to our backyard gardens and expectations of returning migratory birds. One of the great advantages of taking bird watching as a hobby is that although we can travel the world and visit exotic environments to watch birds, we can also do it in the privacy of our own backyards.
The Verde Valley Birding and Nature Festival is held at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood, Arizona. The festival offers field trips led by experienced guides in beautiful central Arizona’s diverse habitats. Guided walks and workshops, vendors and exhibitors along with special events round out this four day event. New field trips are added each year to the schedule of old favorites. Keynote program features John Marzluff, author and birder..
