Celebrate spring by entering the latest Celebrate Urban Birds Challenge: Signs of Spring!. Take a walk outside and notice signs of spring: a robin with a beak full of worms or nesting material, a goldfinch becoming bright yellow again, birds returning from their winter migration, courting behavior, a spring song, a new nest, young birds learning to fly, and more.
The challenge begins February 15 and ends March 31.
Share your observations with us. Be creative! Take a photo, create a dance, do some artwork, shoot video, write a story or a poem, or create a sculpture. Just show or describe signs of spring. Youth of all ages are encouraged to participate!
Prizes include Pennington Bird feeders, Opticron binoculars, sound CDs, posters, books, bird-guides, and more.
We are teaming up with Walmart and Pennington® Wild Bird Food brand to distribute free Celebrate Birds kits to 2,500 teachers across the country through their brand new Adopt-A-School program. This kit provides a classroom with a bird feeder to put on their classroom window, as well as bird seed, kids’ binoculars, fun classroom activities, and the chance to win a mini-grant that will help the schools hold a Celebrate Birds event! Nominate your school via this simple form!
We have stopped accepting nominations and applications for spots in and scholarships to attend the upcoming workshop. Thanks to everyone who participated in the application process! You’ll be hearing back from us soon and if you have any questions please visit our Careers, Conservation, and Nature Workshop FAQ, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 607 254-2455.
