August 18 – 20, Grebe Festival. Lake Almanor is the place to be the weekend of August 18th through 20th as we celebrate the extraordinary “dancing” grebes with our second 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! Educational information, local organizations’ information, and children’s games and activities at the Almanor Recreation Center are free and open to the public during the Grebe Festival. Most fieldtrips and workshops charge a fee which varies by activity. Please visit www.plumasaudubon.org/grebe-festival for more details and to register (walk-in registration during the festival also available).
