International Migratory Bird Day 

2015: Restore Habitat, Restore Birds

Started in 1993, International Migratory Bird Day is now hosted at over 500 sites throughout the Western Hemisphere, reaching literally hundreds of thousands of young people and adults.  As part of the anniversary celebrations, this year’s theme focuses on "Restore habitat, restore birds."

This year’s local Birdathon, held May 2-3, 2015, will help to fund a project to convert several acres at the PVAS property known as Stauffer’s Marsh to warm-season grasses. This 46 acre wetland is home to an amazing variety of animals and plants. The conversion of a few acres to warm-season grasses and native wildflowers will provide nesting sites and year-round food and cover for pollinators, birds and wildlife. Help us to continue to provide a safe place for them to live and for our members to explore.

You can register your Birdathon Team or donate to the 2015 Birdathon using these buttons.

This event is held annually across the Americas the second Saturday in May. It’s a wonderful way to celebrate the amazing feat of migratory birds’ long-distance travels. Help count the successful migrants at a local bird walk or event. Learn more at
