What we're about

We are a coalition of individuals and organizations promoting conservation and community-based actions to create a healthy, more sustainable environment for birds and people in the Lehigh Valley. We work in cooperation with the Bird Town initiative of Audubon Pennsylvania, http://pa.audubon.org/bird-town

For more events with a focus on birds, please visit the Meetup page of Lehigh Valley Audubon Society (https://www.meetup.com/Lehigh-Valley-Audubon-Society).

Want to get involved? We need help with planning and holding Bird Town events! You don't need a high level of knowledge about birds, plants, or nature - just an interest in helping and learning. Please email bcmalt@ptd.net
