Each fall, billions of birds take flight, streaming through the air on their far-flung journeys and each year, we hold our Migration Celebration to pause and marvel at this stunning natural spectacle. Join us September 13-24 for two weeks of special live events, family-friendly programs, and resources to help you enjoy the wonders of migration happening right outside your door.
In a series of free webinars, we’ll bring in experts to explore migration from every angle—from the art of flying birds, to the challenge and fun of hawkwatching, to ways you can help safeguard birds as they pass through. Here’s the lineup:
