Home » Board



The Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival operates under the auspices of the Morro Coast Audubon Society and is overseen by a Board of Directors.  The Board is responsible for short- and long-range planning, all financial decisions, and personnel matters.  Almost all of the Board members are unpaid volunteers, as are nearly all of the field trip and work shop presenters as well as the people who work during the Festival.  In all, about 160 volunteers are involved in making the Festival a success.
