We’re excited to announce a brand-new registration system for the 17th Annual Mono Basin Bird Chautauqua. You may recognize it if you’ve attended the Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival or the Monterey Bay Birding Festival. The new system makes it faster to sign up for trips and easier to register groups, all without needing a username or password.

The tenth annual Mono Basin Bird Chautauqua culminates on Sunday, June 19 with a free celebration at Mono Lake County Park, just five miles north of Lee Vining. Join us to relax in the shade, stroll down the boardwalk, and hear great music by Keith Greeninger and Dayan Kai. Plan to buy your lunch at the park too—all proceeds from the delicious homemade barbeque benefit Lee Vining High School.
To get to County Park from Lee Vining, head north on Highway 395 approximately five miles and turn right on Cemetery Road. Go down the hill and look for parking directions. Parking gets crowded, so please carpool if you can. We look forward to seeing you there!
The 8th Annual Mono Basin Bird Chautauqua is June 19-21, 2009. Registration opened early Wednesday April 15th and over 100 people registered during the first three hours. Twenty of the sixty events were full by midday.
There is still a lot of room left in many of the still-open events, especially since this year, Friday June 19th is a full day of events. In previous years most of Friday’s events started in the evening.
