Green Birding Challenge

Gather your flock and join the Green Birding Challenge!

This exciting challenge helps raise funds for UEC's Community Science program and to provide students and the community opportunities to learn about birds and other members of the natural world. This Green Birding Challenge is also our way of celebrating World Migratory Bird Day! Fossil fuel free bird counts are perfect for beginner to advanced level birders. 

In addition to promoting fossil fuel free birding, The Green Birding Challenge inspires friendly competition and encourages everyone to get outside to explore the wonders of resident and migratory birds in Milwaukee.
