Migratory Bird Outreach & Education

Overview

Public awareness, concern, involvement are crucial components of migratory bird conservation.  Citizens enthusiastic about birds, informed about their threats, and empowered to become involved in addressing those threats, can make a tremendous contribution to maintaining healthy bird populations.  Outreach, education, and communication are important resource management tools employed by the Migratory Bird Management program to broaden public awareness and promote involvement in migratory bird conservation.

The Federal Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program is a dynamic art- and science-based curriculum  that teaches wetland and waterfowl conservation to students in kindergarten through high school. The program encourages students to explore their natural world, invites them to investigate biology and wildlife management principles and challenges them to express and share what they have learned with others.
