World Migratory Bird Day 2018
(WMBD)

"Unifying our Voices for Bird Conservation"

The year 2018 marks a new start for World Migratory Bird Day as it now unifies the planet’s major migratory bird corridors, or flyways, namely the African-Eurasian, the East Asian-Australasian, and the Americas flyways. Furthermore, to make celebrations even more successful and relevant to bird supporters all over the world, WMBD will now have two peak celebration days in the year - the second Saturdays of May and October - and can in addition still also be celebrated all around the year, whenever migratory birds are present in a given locality.

Therefore 2018 is an important transition year in the history of World Migratory Bird Day. Bringing together even more people around the world, WMBD aims to reach out to a broader audience and amplify its message for bird conservation. As a new global platform that unifies efforts worldwide, WMBD will be reinforcing education and awareness-raising about the need to protect migratory birds and their habitats - at all different levels, in all parts of the world.

A Migratory Bird Festival in Lincoln City on Sunday, May 13, 2018 is under consideration by ASLC.

We are looking for partnership opportunities with the city, the cultural center, schools, and other Lincoln City area groups. Under consideration is some type of indoor "festival" following the theme adopted by WMBD "The Year of the Bird", which may include vendor and educational booths on birds and their habitats, activities for adults and kids, refreshments, etc., as well as one or two "birdwalks" at the local refuges. Displays of bird art, native plant sale and perhaps a live raptor show are also under consideration.

Most importantly for the birth of this event, business partners and volunteers are being actively sought. Your interest in supporting the Migratory Bird Festival will ensure its success and will be deeply appreciated by ASLC and all who attend the event.

Contact ASLC Festival Coordinator Dawn Villaescusa (dawnv@birdlover.com) for more information on how you and/or your organization can support the Migratory Bird Festival.
