Wave Goodbye to our Shorebirds

The Friends of Alaska National Wildlife Refuges and Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge welcome local Alaskans, Visitors, and of course, shorebirds back to Kachemak Bay every year to mark this favorite spring-time celebration which is the largest Wildlife Viewing Festival in Alaska. The annual Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival, held on traditional Sugpiaq and Deni'ina lands in Homer, Alaska, happened in 2021 like never before.
