Year of the Bird
Get Involved

Make This Your Year of the Bird

Each month take small actions to make a difference for birds. August's featured action is to Discover Your Parks and Public Lands. Find a local place to observe birds by exploring trails, parks, wildlife refuges, and forests, seashores, and other sanctuaries. Help protect these havens for both people and birds, and consider volunteering. Other actions like mow less, avoid pesticides, think organic, and save water make a difference too. Join the 2018 Year of the Bird celebration!
