The beauty, natural significance and variety of habitats found in the Columbia Valley attract many biologists, naturalists and conservationists who work to understand and preserve our natural ecosystems. Wings Over the Rockies Nature Festival has traditionally depended on the expertise of such people to make presentations and lead field trips through the wetlands, lakes, grasslands, and forests flanking the Columbia River. There are also local enthusiasts who have devoted years to observing birds and have gained an impressive expertise in birding. Our presenters contribute their time, energy and knowledge in their desire to educate and instill an appreciation for nature. Thanks to these dedicated volunteers!
