This weekend (August 24-26) is the first international Pledge to Fledge (P2F) weekend. Organized by the Global Birding Initiative, the program is designed to encourage birders to share their love of birding with others, particularly introducing the joys of wild birds to someone completely new. By educating others about birds and sharing how much fun birding can be, new birders will "fledge" and hopefully grow into an even stronger, larger group of citizens supporting bird conservation.
How can you Pledge to Fledge?
- Invite a family member, friend or neighbor for a bird walk.
- Give a simple bird feeder or field guide as a gift.
- Offer a birding program for a school, church or other group.
