Spokane Audubon sells 
Duck Stamps

Available from July 1 through  February 15 each year

Ninety eight percent of the purchase price of a Duck Stamp goes directly to help acquire and protect wetland habitat and purchase conservation easements for the National Wildlife Refuge System. Buy yours here.


The Patrick Sullivan Young Birders Fund (PSYBF), supported by contributions from members of the Washington Ornithological Society and from the general public, was established in 2005 to encourage and support young people interested in birding. Grants are available to individual young people or to adults to help fund group birding activities or education for young people. We define “young birders” as anyone in the age group from pre-teens through college showing a serious interest in birds and birding. Both students and non-students are eligible and are encouraged to apply.This grant program is not intended to support graduate school activities.


What's a yardmap?


YardMap is a citizen science project designed to cultivate a richer understanding of bird habitat, for both professional scientists and people concerned with their local environments.

Another Citizen Science project from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology

Self-directed, Self-Catered Western Kalahari Birding Tour with my Non-birder Husband as Guide
By Kim Thorburn

The weird and wonderful biologic adaptations for survival in the harsh conditions of the western Kalahari are a naturalist’s dream. Less explored than the tropical and montane forests of the eastern side of southern Africa, the routes off of highways N7 of South Africa and B1 of Namibia have a lower number of animal species than African tropics but present many hot spots of endemicity. The same can’t be said of the plant kingdom because it has both phenomenal diversity and endemicity in the region.
