Send Us Your Conservation Milestones!

If you didn’t see the Conservation Milestones in the May 2017 Birder’s Guide to Conservation & Community, take a moment to read them here. You’ll be inspired.

And now it’s time to do it again! If you have a conservation project, or if know someone has gone out of their way to help bird conservation, please tell us about it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This column is a twist on the familiar listing “milestones” feature that appears regularly in Birding. The idea behind Conservation Milestones is to highlight people who tackle projects that build a better future for birds–backyard birdscaping, education efforts, monitoring projects, self-directed research, local land conservation, grassroots campaigns, bird-themed events… No project is too small.

You can nominate someone else, or tell us about your own project. These milestones will be published later this spring in the 2018 issue of Birder’s Guide to Conservation & Community. The sooner we hear from you, the better. To be included, we must receive your information no later than March 20.

In previous years, Birding Associate Editor Noah Strycker dutifully compiled these uplifting stories, but he’s retired in his position as Conservation Milestones Editor and passed the torch to Raymond VanBuskirk. It’s easy to share a milestone: Just send Raymond an email at raymond AT branttours.com. Be sure attach several photos to help illustrate the story (high resolution if possible), and include caption information and the photographer’s name. We look forward to hearing from you!
