Volunteer - MBBF

Morro Bay Bird Festival volunteers are vitally important to the overall success of this very popular 5 day event. Examples of duties may include; registration, attendee check-in, sales, hospitality, speaker introduction, trip-starters, set up/take down, signage placement and much more. There may be opportunities to volunteer before the festival as well. The choice(s) will be yours.

In exchange, we offer you a unique opportunity to be part of the bird festival. As an incentive, 6+ hour volunteers will be offered

  • registration discounts * (half off for full pass on opening registration day) or
  • free registration * (two weeks following opening registration day)
  • post-festival "volunteers only" birding adventures

*Please note that volunteers will pay any transportation or boat fees.

All volunteers will receive a festival t-shirt!

Filling out this form will put your name on the volunteer email notification list. If you volunteered for the 2023 festival, there is no need to complete this form; we have your information and we will be contacting you prior to the 2024 festival registration date. Expect a follow-up email with instructions on how to sign up for specific tasks/shifts in mid-October, 2023. 

On behalf of the Morro Bay Bird Festival Planning Committee and Board of Directors - Thank you!!
