Looking Forward to JAN 11-14, 2024
"Welcome" to our 30th Wings Over Willcox Birding & Nature festival! This year's festival promises to be even better than the preceding years. The summer and early fall rains have been spectacular and the habitat is lush and food resources plenty for our birds - one never knows what species may show up! Then, to capitalize on the promise of many winter sparrows, we have Rick Wright sharing his expertise. Rick's presentation during the banquet is sure to be informative and entertaining. This year also offers opportunities to spend time with Rick during two tours to spot our wintering birds.
The organizing committee and volunteers helping to run the event are AMAZING, not to mention knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I am always impressed with the ideas presented and directions the WOW committee moves each year to continue to improve the festival and bring the festival to life. Just as exciting is the behind-the-scenes work by our volunteers with the local school systems to bring birds to the classroom and plan significant habitat improvements and wildlife viewing amenities for the Cochise Lake area
So I would say "Come on down to Willcox" and spend some time with our birds. We enjoy having you here and look forward to spending more time together exploring nature in our corner of the world.
