MI Birds is a public outreach and education program created by Audubon Great Lakes and Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Birders and hunters share similar conservation values, but rarely cross paths. MI Birds aims to bridge the divide, and increase and deepen the number of Michiganders engaged in the understanding, care, and stewardship of public lands that are important for birds and communities.
MI Birds leads immersive public bird walks across the state, gives public talks on bird conservation in MI, engages Michiganders in stewardship activities and community science projects, and works with partner organizations to expand our reach, pool our resources, and share our collective conservation success stories on our public lands.

Audubon chapters create a culture of conservation in local communities through education and advocacy, focusing on the conservation of birds and conservation of important habitats.
Help secure the future for birds at risk from climate change, habitat loss and other threats. Your support will power our science, education, advocacy and on-the-ground conservation efforts.
