Over 500 have already registered for the 33rd annual 'Winter Wings' festival.
The event will take place over the presidents day weekend at OIT.
The festival is the largest of its kind on the west coast.
"I just enjoy getting out and watching the bald eagles, and all the swans, and the snow geese that come in this time of year - and if you haven't experienced that, it's just a fabulous outing." said Diana Samuels.
As many as 2000 people are expected to take advantage of free weekend events that are open to the general public.
