How to Register

2. View or print the 2017 Bird Festival Registration Worksheet. (Optional) This serves as a worksheet to create your itinerary prior to going online to register.
3. Click here to proceed to the Online Registration link and follow the prompts.

We apologize that group registration is not available at this time. If you are part of a group (such as a married couple or a bird club) you can still register, but each member must register as an individual. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

Though we allow mail-in registrations (the worksheet doubles as the mail-in registration form), online registration is the BEST way to get the field trips you want.

If you require technical support with your registration, please call (801)671-9505 during business hours (M-F 9am to 5 pm). Please do not call the general San Diego Audubon Office number for technical support.
