Working Across Boundaries
Connecting human communities and ecosystems throughout the full life cycle
Conservation of Kirtland's Warblers would not be possible without sustained commitments from conservation organizations, land managers, community leaders, engaged youth, birding and nature enthusiasts, sportsmen/women, elected officials, and local land owners. We are actively growing our expertise in human dimensions and capacity building to enhance our ability to engage diverse human communities and innovate pathways for sustained stewardship of this species and the habitats it depends on during its full life cycle.
Here are a few examples of ways in which we engage human communities:
- Education and Outreach: Our conservation partners provide classroom education programs, field trips, guided birding tours, young artists' contests, and invited presentations at conferences and meetings.
- Volunteer Days: Individuals can take part in providing habitat for Kirtland's Warblers through Jack Pine Planting Days and other events. Visit our Calendar of Events page to look for opportunities near you!
- Public Events: Join us at one or more of our events each year, ranging from the Kirtland's Warbler Home Opener, Festivals, and annual Conservation Team meetings. Visit our Calendar of Events page to look for opportunities near you!
- Fundraising: You can donate today to ensure conservation programs vital to the health of the Kirtland’s Warbler continue.
