The festival is an excellent kick-off to the area’s summer tourist season. Birders stay in area hotels, eat in area restaurants, fuel up and get snacks at area gas stations, and shop at gift stores for souvenirs from the Cobscook Bay Region. We’d love to direct participants your way when they’re looking for local businesses to support.

Your sponsorship helps us promote the festival in magazines, newspapers, and online, in direct mailings to birding groups, in visitors centers on the Maine Turnpike and in Calais, and in outreach efforts to area schools. In exchange, birders learn about your business and are able to take advantage of all this region has to offer. Perhaps you might also offer special deals to bring patrons to your venue - we are glad to help you develop an ad or web listing.

Be in touch with any questions by emailing, or calling 733-2233, ext. 330. 

The Down East Spring Birding Festival is hosted by the Cobscook Community Learning Center in partnership with a local organizing committee, which includes Moosehorn National Wildlife RefugeFundy Chapter of the Maine Audubon Society, Cobscook Bay State Park, Maine Coast Heritage Trust,Maine Sea Grant Program, and Downeast Lakes Land Trust.
