Are you looking for ideas to help you plan and design your event? Here are some ways to help make your Bird Day a success:
Bird Counts & Bird Day Event Pass
Most IMBD events include bird walks, and while you’re out introducing the public to birds, you can share the importance of gathering accurate information about birds and the value of observations. You can use the Event Pass to keep track of the number of stations participants have visited at your event. This is a fun way to record an individual’s progress through stations.

Get to Know – Art Contest
Take part in the 2017 IMBD – Get to Know Art Gallery and Contest. We are especially interested in how your art (photography, painting, sketching, sculpture, and poetry) illustrates the conservation theme, “Helping Birds Along the Way”. Submitting your art is easy. Just take a photo of it or scan it, then upload to the gallery. We hope to see your art!
