Call for Conservation Milestones!

If you didn’t see the Conservation Milestones in the 2018 Birder’s Guide to Conservation & Community, take a moment to read them. 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 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.

Have a milestone to share? Please send a 250- to 350-word description to Conservation Milestones Editor Raymond VanBuskirk at raymond AT Attach several photos to help illustrate the story (high resolution if possible), and include the photographer’s name and caption information.

ou can nominate someone else, or tell us about your own project! These milestones will be published in the 2019 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 April 10.

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!
