Each year there is a focus on a different aspect of migratory birds and their conservation. This year’s theme is Life Cycle of a Migratory Bird.
The event provides information and education materials about birds, bird conservation, and bird education to inspire people of all ages to get outdoors, learn about birds, and take part in their conservation.
