What Can You Do to Participate in Year of the Bird This Month?
Participate in Audubon's Western Rivers Bird Count and Climate Watch

Migration is in full swing and birds are returning to their breeding grounds. Tracking when and where migratory birds show up helps create strategies to protect them. This month's Year of the Bird actions are to participate in Audubon’s Western Rivers Bird Count and Climate Watch. By participating in the Western Rivers Bird Count from May 5—June 30, you can help us better understand how birds are responding to drought in the West. In addition, Audubon's new community science program, Climate Watch, explores how birds are responding to climate change. You can participate any time between May 15—June 15!

Community Naturalist
  • Annual Birdathon - May 15: Our staff and volunteers will race against the clock to tally as many bird species as possible within 24 hours. For each species we find, donors like you can pledge to donate a certain amount beforehand. Funds raised will support science-based education, teacher trainings, and citizen science projects to people of all ages across Wyoming and Colorado. Pledge your support today by emailing jklosterprew@audubon.org, or learn more here!
  • BioBlitz - June 22-24: Mark your calendars for this amazing opportunity to help experts survey and identify as many plants, insects, and animals as possible at The Nature Conservancy’s beautiful Tensleep Preserve in Wyoming. All ages are welcome and no experience is necessary.
Habitat Hero
  • Habitat Hero Garden Tour - June 9: In celebration of Native Plant Week, proclaimed by Governor Hickenlooper, Audubon Rockies & Colorado Native Plant Society have teamed up to present a garden tour that features the Habitat Heroes of Fort Collins.
