The Grand Isle Migratory Bird Celebration!

This Annual Celebration Event, initiated in 1998, was created in part to support the purchase and management of the Grand Isle Sanctuary to protect some of the last remaining undeveloped chenier habitats (live oak ridges).

Only 10% of these forest habitats that once existed on much of Grand Isle still exist today.

The Sanctuary Group sponsors the Grand Isle Migratory Bird Celebration annually to correspond with peak bird migration in April. This event is hosted by Grand Isle Sanctuary Group and supported by the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program. The Grand Isle Community Development Team, as well as The Louisiana Nature Conservancy, are also major cosponsors for this event.

The Grand Isle Migratory Bird Celebration!

April 21-23, 2017

See songbirds in oak-hackberry woods, shorebirds and waders on beaches and in the marshes and raptors overhead. Grand Isle is an essential stop for songbirds during their spring and fall migrations across the Gulf of Mexico and is one of the best places in the world to see and study birds up close.

The Grand Isle Sanctuary Group invites you to join our Spring Celebration.
