THE BOSTON BIRDING FESTIVAL

Creating Experiences OF Collective Awe

In partnership with environmental, cultural, and community leaders, the Boston Birding Festival works to strengthen public understanding and appreciation of the natural world and advance bold goals for environmental justice, conservation, and sustainability. 

We do this through the lens of birding.

THE FIRST EVENTS ARE HERE!

Join us for our irregularly scheduled programming as we ramp up for a multi-day Festival in 2025.

Let’s Talk About Cats

According to the latest research and data, In the US alone, 2.4 billion birds Are killed by outdoor cats annually—around 70 percent of this is attributable to feral/unowned and free-range cats. The impact on the bird population is staggering. What to do?

Bird-Friendly Coffee Tastings

Almost 90 % of the coffee Americans drink harms bird habitat and contributes to climate change. We want to show you that if birders switched their brew, even just a few days a week, we could make a big difference. Join us for a cup.

Binoculars

BINOCULAR CAR WASH

Almost every birder uses them. But when was the last time you looked at them instead of through them? Bring your bins and join us on zoom to learn more about your binoculars.

We welcome your interest in helping the Festival take flight. Become Program Partner, sponsor an event, or join our team. ​

THREE BILLION BIRDS

In the past 50 years, the total North American bird population has fallen by almost 3 billion or 29 percent. Rising temperatures also threaten two-thirds of North American bird species with extinction.

We have about a decade to preserve the habitats and species we know today, stem the effects of climate change and reduce risks to birds and other wildlife. And you can help.

We invite you to join us online and in person for unique bird and birding experiences. The Festival’s programs are designed to celebrate the work of others and help all of us learn from the heroes working to save birds and their habitat and advance the cause of environmental justice. Discover how you can get involved and help write a different story.

Good Birding!
