The first ever Grebe Festival will take place at Lake Almanor in Chester from August 19-21.

There will be a diverse assortment of activities for all to enjoy during the festival. Starting with a Grebe Research Symposium on Friday for those interested in the more scientific aspect of the grebes, their ecology and conservation. Later in the evening, folks can partake in the Beer Stroll around Old Towne Chester to benefit Plumas Audubon Society and the Feather River Land Trust.

Saturday and Sunday will be filled with activities for all ages and interests. Choose from a wide variety of events: pontoon and kayak tours, field trips to Chester Meadows, historic Olsen Barn property, Willow Lake, north fork of Feather River and Humbug Valley. There will also be crafts and nature activities in the Almanor Recreation Center - Chester, CA for fun and education.

The purpose of the Grebe Festival is to celebrate the conservation of these charismatic and interesting birds while at the same time giving people a chance to enjoy themselves. The field trips and events that Plumas Audubon has planned will cover many aspects of nature enjoyment and some also have historical significance.
