Audubon’s Baltimore Birding Weekend: Winter and Spring Events!

Let’s celebrate the city for migratory birds! Registrations are open for Audubon’s Baltimore Birding Weekend, May 18-20, 2018. Winner of Baltimore magazine’s Best New Eco Event in 2017, Audubon’s birding festival consists of an exciting itinerary of guided bird watching field trips throughout Baltimore. The purpose of Audubon's Baltimore Birding Weekends is to connect people to the city’s waterfront and green spaces, highlight the incredible wildlife diversity that can be discovered in our urban parks, wetlands, and ecological restoration sites, and have a fun time exploring Charm City.

Join us for a walk, a paddle, or a boat ride; click on the image below for trip descriptions, locations, and prices. We also invite sponsors to support Audubon’s celebration of Baltimore City’s important habitats for birds. The event website contains information on field trip registration and sponsorship levels.
