North Coast Conversations: Godwit Days 2024

As the largest bay between San Francisco and Coos Bay, Humboldt Bay is an important stop for migratory shorebirds as they travel twice a year on the Pacific Flyway. Every year, almost a million birds from over 300 species flock to our waterways, deltas, and marshes. Established in 1996, Godwit Days aims to help showcase the beauty and splendor of our avian friends as they pass through the North Coast, as well as teach the community about the importance of conservation and biodiversity.

This week, I met with the Godwit Days Chair, Alex Stillman, to learn more about the festival.

The opening ceremony will be taking place on Friday at the Arcata Community Center at 5. To learn more, buy tickets, or reserve a spot on one of almost 100 planned events through Sunday, please visit

Thank you for listening, and stay tuned for more episodes of North Coast Conversations as we explore more of what the North Coast has to offer.

Alejandro Zepeda has worked for KHSU since early 2020, providing news, PSA’s, and an interview show called North Coast Conversations to the station.
