Registration is now open for the 2nd Annual Pikes Peak Birding & Nature Festival (PPBNF). See and enjoy the birds and wildlife of Colorado’s beautiful Front Range. The festival is geared to all levels of birders and has many family oriented events.

The festival offers thirty-five unique opportunities for participants. Twenty field trips take you from the top of Pikes Peak to the prairie. Join an experienced field trip leader for a birding experience you’ll never forget. Explore the prairies, foothills, and higher elevations for a variety of birds, each species adapted to its special habitat.

From Steller’s Jays and Black-billed Magpies to Virginia’s Warblers and Ovenbirds. From Broad-tailed Hummingbirds and American Dippers to Ladder-backed Woodpeckers and Curved-billed Thrashers. Make these part of your lifelist.

Paul Bannick, our keynote speaker, is an award-winning wildlife photographer specializing in the natural history of North America with a focus on birds and habitat. Coupling his love of the outdoors with his skill as a photographer, he creates images that foster the intimacy between viewer and subject, inspiring education and conservation.
