Public Programs

Detroit Audubon is developing a set of educational programs designed to engage the general public. Here is a sample of the types of programs we look forward to delivering to the public either individually or as part of a larger event.

Birdwatch for Science

Participants are introduced to a variety of citizen science programs focused on birds with a special emphasis on eBird. Participants will get hands-on experience recording bird observations (using the eBird data form) and are invited to submit their data at the end of the program.  (90 minutes, for adults but children welcome)
Dates: To be announced

Living Bird feeders

Learn why native plants — and the insect life they support — are essential for birds. An interactive presentation about native plants for birds is followed by a hands-on activity developed to drive the message home. (90 minutes, for adults but children welcome)
Dates: To be announced

More coming soon!
