Birding 101

If you are interested in birding but don’t know where to start, let Detroit Audubon help you out by explaining the very basics of birding. We discuss why so  many people love birding, the necessary tools, timing, locations, and how to go from birding novice to birding expert.

Birds for Kids!

Birds are an excellent way to teach many science topics  such as adaptations, food chains and habitat. Birds also provide excellent opportunities to learn about research and the scientific method through community science. We have lesson plans, hands on activities and scientific specimens to keep kids interested and involved.

Black Tern Conservation

Black Tern monitoring at St Clair Flats is one of Detroit Audubon’s primary conservation initiatives. Learn about the rapid decline of this Great Lakes bird and how Detroit Audubon is working to restore their numbers.

Great Lakes Safe Passage

Almost one billion birds die due to window and building collisions each year in the US. Help us increase awareness about this horrible but often ignored conservation issue. Learn about the small things you can do to prevent collisions and save hundreds of birds.

Plants for Birds

Native plants require less work and provide resources for our local birds and pollinators. Learn about how you can turn your yard into a mini wildlife sanctuary.

We are happy to adjust programs to better fit the size, age, or preference of your group. In order to fund our programs and conservation work, we usually ask for a donation as payment. If you are interested please contact us at staff@detroitaudubon.org.
