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.
