Audubon's Baltimore Birding Weekend

  • Baltimore City

Audubon's Baltimore Birding Weekend is an event hosted by Patterson Park Audubon Center (pattersonpark.audubon.org) & Conservation Community Consulting. Together, we are planning Baltimore’s first urban birding festival, which will consist of an exciting itinerary of bird watching field trips entirely within the city limits. These green spaces are vital to exhausted and hungry birds looking to rest and refuel during migration. That makes spring the ideal time to catch a glimpse of these international travelers as they stop by Baltimore’s green spaces for a brief visit on their way to summer nesting in the north!

Join us for guided walks (and a paddle) all over town, followed by Tally Rallies at local breweries. Let's see how many species we can find in these urban oases! Then finish the weekend cheering on the Baltimore Orioles vs. Toronto Blue Jays!
