Forwarding this from Judy Meredith of East Cascades Audubon Society, just across Santiam Pass from our area. 

If you're interested in seeing and learning about woodpecker species like White-headed Woodpecker, Black-backed Woodpecker, and Williamson's and Red-naped Sapsuckers along with other cool east-slope birds like Green-tailed Towhee, this festival is a great way to go -- all for a good cause that benefits conservation & education work by an exceptional organization! -- joel 


Announcing the 10th Annual Dean Hale Woodpecker festival. Online registration opens April 1. The Festival is headquartered in beautiful Sisters , Oregon and takes place June 4-7, 2020. This is a very popular festival and most tours fill very quickly, sometimes within a day of registration opening. This year, participants have a choice of twenty-nine guided tours in search of 11 different woodpecker species and 200 other birds that make central Oregon a birding hot spot. Study the list of trips in advance of registration to be ready to sign up early on April 1. 

The non-profit East Cascades Audubon Society (ECAS) sponsors the Dean Hale Woodpecker Festival, which offers a fun, friendly, casual atmosphere that is all about the birds. The trips are affordable, limited in size and guided by two local volunteers. The proceeds support ECAS education and conservation projects.
