About Us

Who We Are

We love birds! We're a community of people who are interested in learning more about birds, working to make native habitats more abundant, and working to make natural spaces more accessible to all. 

We highlight that learning about birds also means learning about how the ecological, cultural, and political histories shape the landscapes around us. 

Learning about birds is also a great way to connect with other people—people have different relationships with birds across cultures and can come together through the experience of encountering birds. 

We work to make our club a welcoming space for anyone remotely curious about these ideas, regardless of experience and time commitment.
