Lake Almanor Grebe Festival

Generally occurs: Late August
Location: Almanor Recreation Center, Lake Almanor, Chester CA
Address:
[email protected]
Chester, California 96020
USA

Description:
Lake Almanor is the place to be as we celebrate the extraordinary “dancing” grebes with our annual Grebe Festival centered in Chester, CA. Western and Clark’s Grebes (Aechmophorus occidentalis and A. clarkii) nest on Lake Almanor which is considered an Important Bird Area by National Audubon and which has grown in its importance as a breeding site for these grebes in recent years as drought has caused loss of nesting habitat elsewhere. Late August is a great time to view the grebes as they are still nesting on the lake in colonies, racing across the water in their incredible “rushing” displays, and when some babies are hatching and climbing aboard their parents’ backs. Kayak and pontoon fieldtrips will allow festival-goers to get an up-close (but not too close!) look at nesting grebes. A variety of other fieldtrips around the Lake Almanor basin and Lassen National Park will be sure to satisfy! For more information, please visit www.plumasaudubon.org/grebe-festival.
