Please join the all-volunteer MBBF Planning Committee as we celebrate Monterey Bay area's bounty and beauty with locals and people from all over the world during the three day birding festival on September 20-22, 2019.

Directors and Committee Planners: Join our fun and enthusiastic group of volunteers who steer the Festival. We meet once a month and manage festival tasks between meetings. Birding experience is not essential, but enthusiasm is! Would you like to:

  • Coordinate field trips
  • Find sponsors
  • Coordinate vendors
  • Coordinate a photo contest?

If so, contact us at

Of course, there will be plenty of opportunities to volunteer during the festival week. Stay tuned to learn about how you can help. Those who volunteer for six hours during the festival week have the opportunity to attend the events free of charge.
