Grand Teton National Park invites you to join park ranger Andrew Langford on a bird-watching caravan on Saturday, May 11, 2018 to celebrate World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD). During his event we will visit areas throughout Grand Teton that provide the best opportunities to locate, identify and record birds.

Anyone interested in birds is welcome to participate. The bird-watching excursion begins at 8 am from the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center in Moose and finishes by 4 pm at Christian Pond by Jackson Lake Lodge.

The activity is free and reservations are not required. Throughout the day, participants will take short walks at various locations. Participants may join the caravan anytime during the day, a schedule of the times and locations visited is available from the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center in Moose or call 307-739-3399.

Those attending should wear comfortable shoes and bring a lunch, drinking water, warm clothing and rain gear. Bird field guides, binoculars and spotting scopes are also recommended items.

The 2019 WMBD theme "Protects Birds: Be the Solution to Plastic Pollution” highlights plastics as a threat to migratory birds and emphasizes the simple but effective ways that people help to reduce the threat.

Observed each year in May to celebrate and support avian conservation, IMBD serves as the hallmark outreach event for Partners in Flight - an international conservation program whose goal is to reverse declining populations of migratory birds by bringing attention to factors that contribute to worldwide declines.

For more information about International Migratory Bird Day, now World Migratory Bird Day, and the North American Migration Count, please call the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center at 307-739-3399.

Participants of the IMBD activity are reminded that park entrance stations are open, therefore a park pass is required for travel through these fee stations.
