Attention all Bird lovers, the Verde Valley Birding and Nature Festival is close at hand! The Verde Valley is home to many species of birds and normally at the festival over a 100 species of birds are seen including herons, cardinals, tanagers, warblers, hawks and egrets to only name a few. The festival celebrates nature with 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.
The keynote program features Noah Stryker. Noah Strycker is a 30-year-old writer, photographer, and bird man based near Eugene, Oregon. In 2015, during a quest spanning 41 countries and all seven continents, he set a world record by seeing 6,042 species of birds (more than half the birds on Earth) in one calendar year.
The featured contributing artist is Deedy Gregg. Deedy Gregg is a longtime resident of the Verde Valley in central Arizona, having grown up in Sedona, AZ in the early 1950s and ’60s. Interested in art at a young age, she pursued portrait drawing in her teens and over the years, has honed her skills to include realistic drawings of wildlife and birds. She works exclusively in graphite and colored pencils.
