Increasing Education and Awareness

Educational Programming

Michigan Audubon is dedicated to increasing awareness of bird conservation. Our education programs target a wide range of audiences, from workshops for home-schooled children to presentations by expert birders. Our Young Birders Club is for ages 12–18 and is run by young birders, for young birders. At our Signature Events, we provide keynote speakers, nature and birds walks, and presentations that focus on timely subjects for beginning and experienced birders alike.

Raising Awareness

Michigan Audubon staff and volunteers are available for answering birding questions, recommending speakers and books, and directing bird watchers to destinations throughout the state. We collaborate with other conservation organizations like Michigan Nature Association, The Stewardship Network, National Audubon, and local Audubon chapters to share news and inspire environmental action via our social media, direct emails, and press releases.

Michigan Young Birders Camp

Michigan Audubon is working with Alma College, USFWS, and the Chippewa Nature Center in planning the 2020 Michigan Young Birders camp. This camp will target students ages 13 – 18 and is scheduled for June 21 – 26, 2020. For more information, contact Education Coordinator Lindsay Cain at

Our Publications

Michigan Audubon has two publications, the Jack Pine Warbler and Michigan Birds and Natural History. Both publications help us raise awareness about key issues in Michigan. As our member magazine, the Jack Pine Warbler focuses highlighting a specific bird and features articles about birding destinations, book reviews, our Young Birders Club, and bird conservation. Michigan Birds and Natural History is Michigan Audubon’s journal dedicated to ornithology and natural history of Michigan. These publications are an extension of our education program and allow us to reach a broader audience in our mission to connect birds and people for the benefit of both.
