Event Description

Birds know no borders. Many of the species that sing to us all summer have winter homes farther south in Central or South America. Some birds just pass through, and some settle in for the summer. Whatever their destination, May is a time of year where we can see many species in our parks. World Migratory Bird Day is a celebration of the diversity of birds that live among us, and a reminder of our ability to protect these animals as they travel extraordinary distances each year.


On May 11th, come to the Frick Environmental Center to engage your larger-than-bird brain and celebrate World Migratory Bird Day with the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, The Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Three Rivers Birding Club, The Feminist Bird Club of Pittsburgh and other bird minded organizations.


We will have a variety of activities for learners of all ages, from fledgling to adult, that teach ways to appreciate and help birds in our backyards.
