The Biggest Week in American Birding

Mark your calendars NOW for the 2014 Biggest Week in American Birding May 6th - 15th!

By all estimations, the 2013 Biggest Week was a smashing success! Record numbers of people registered, and they came from 46 states and at least 13 countries! More than 200 volunteers worked together to make the event run smoothly, the weather was spectacular, and the birds did their part, too, delighting and dazzling people who traveled here from all over the world! The event also raised thousands of dollars to support local bird research, education, and conservation, and brought together an astounding number of partners and sponsors. 

Our sincere thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers, to our co-hosts at Destination Toledo and Lake Erie Shores and Islands, and a special thanks to Patrick Czarny and his outstanding staff at Maumee Bay Lodge and Conference Center! We'd also like to thank our sponsors for their support of the festival.
