Kalpavriksh is collaborating in the 2nd Uttarakhand Spring Bird Festival, to be held on 4-8th February 2015.

The Uttarakhand Bird-watching Programme was launched in February 2012 by the Ecotourism Wing of the Uttarakhand Forest Department. Under their aegis, twenty-four bird-watching camps have been conducted during the last two years at various birding destinations in Uttarakhand. These were attended by nearly 500 forest staff, nature guides, tour operators, students and villagers, who benefitted from the bird-watching and interpretation training in these camps. The First Uttarakhand Spring Bird Festival was organized at Asan Conservation Reserve from the 5th to 9th of February 2014. During this festival, several publications were brought out to raise awareness about bird-watching in the state.

The 2nd Bird Festival aims to build on the gains made during the Uttarakhand Bird-watching Programme and subsequently during the previous festival, and will help attract bird-watchers to the Kumaon region.
