Why Detroit Bird Alliance? The name says it all!

  • Detroit: Our members reside in the City of Detroit and across southeastern Michigan.

  • Bird: We are dedicated to birds – to protecting them, preserving their habitat and inspiring an appreciation for all birds.

  • Alliance: We are part of a larger network of bird-dedicated organizations. Our conservation efforts rely on collaboration between individuals, communities and organizations. We are stronger together.

Our affiliation as the Detroit chapter of the National Audubon Society will not change.
