Audubon has long realized that people of color, including our Black friends, are underrepresented in the birding and conservation communities. That’s why we welcomed Black Birders Week in June: it’s an opportunity for us to reach out to spread the word about bird conservation — and to help everyone experience the joy of birding!

We thought that you might enjoy a few photos from the event. We particularly want to thank Nicole Jackson, one of our newest Columbus Audubon board members, for her hard work in organizing the week’s activities.
