International Migratory Bird Day
Why Birds Matter
Celebrating 22 Years of IMBD
This year, International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD) will celebrate its 22nd anniversary. Started in 1993, the event 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 22nd anniversary celebrations, this year’s theme focuses on "Why Birds Matter."
This year’s local Birdathon, held May 3-4, 2014, 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.
