Birdability Week 2021 Events

Tuesday, October 19, 2021 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM ET
Empowering Exploration: Birding With an Access Challenge

Join a panelist of birders—and potential future birders—with disabilities and other health concerns as we discuss their approach to adventure and exploration. What do you think about when planning a birding trip? How do you tackle obstacles, and what happens when something goes wrong? How can you frame your birding exploits to be a tool of empowerment, rather than seeing barriers at every turn? We hope you’ll come away with a new approach to birding! Register Here

Accessibility For Me: What makes a birding location truly accessible?

A birding location opens a new boardwalk and describes it on their website as “accessible”… but when you arrive, you discover it really isn’t. Join Birdability Coordinator and occupational therapist Freya McGregor to discover what can make a birding location truly accessible, how to submit Birdability Site Reviews to the Birdability Map, and where to hold accessible and inclusive bird outings. We’ll hear from special guests explaining accessibility needs, and get ideas on trail design and upgrades you can advocate for in your community. Register Here

Panel: A Good IDEA for Birding

Join in for a conversation about inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA) in birding and the outdoors, and learn what you can do to be a more welcoming and inclusive birder for folks who are BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, who have a disability or other health concern, and who share intersecting identities. Come away with more understanding and appreciation for your fellow birder, and strategies you can start implementing immediately for yourself and any groups or organizations you’re a part of to help ensure birding truly is for everybody!
