100 Years / 100 Bird Walks

2016 is marked at the year of the Monkey on the Chinese calendar. But for the Fish and Wildlife Service - 2016 is the Year of the Bird.  In our efforts to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Migratory Bird Treaty, we are kicking off a year of birding adventures with our 100 Bird Walks program! Join us for 100 “knock-your-socks-off” bird walks that span several seasons and many states — from Washington’s snowy North Cascades to the humid rainforests atop Hawaii’s volcanoes.
