World Migratory Bird Day at Frick Environmental Center

Birds know no borders. Many of the species that sing to us all summer have winter homes farther south in Central or South America. Some birds just pass through, and some settle in for the summer. Whatever their destination, May is a time of year where we can see many species in our parks.  World Migratory Bird Day is a celebration of the diversity of birds that live among us, and a reminder of our ability to protect these animals as they travel extraordinary distances each year.

On May 12th, come to the Frick Environmental Center to engage your larger-than-bird brain and celebrate World Migratory Bird Day with the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy and Carnegie Museum of Natural History.

We will have a variety of activities for learners of all ages, from fledgling to adult, that teach ways to appreciate and help birds in our backyards including:

bird banding with researchers
guided walks with local bird experts at 6:30am, 8:30am, and 9:30am (9:30 walk geared towards families with children and teenage youth)
information about ways you can contribute to citizen science and bird conservation
build-your-own window treatments to reduce collisions at your home or workplace
a variety of arts, crafts, and other fun bird activities TBA (check back for updates as we approach May!)
