World Migratory Bird Day – April 28, 2019

Protect Birds: Be the Solution to Plastic Pollution

Environment for the Americas coordinates WMBD in North and South America to increase awareness and promote the conservation of migratory birds that we share across borders. It is a celebration of one of the most important and spectacular events in the life of a migratory bird – its journey between breeding and non-breeding grounds. The program was created by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center to focus public attention on the need for action to conserve birds and their habitats.


Armand Bayou Nature Center will host a full day celebration dedicated to World Migratory Bird Day, featuring 3 Events for you to choose from.
