Dedicated to creating a greater awareness, appreciation, and understanding of the interrelatedness of all Michigan’s wild places and wildlife and the need for stewardship. 



 The North American Migration Count will be conducted on May 9.  It provides a “snapshot” of spring migration across North America.  The Michigan coordinators are Michael Petrucha and Jeff Buecking.  Members of Capital Area Audubon Society and other local birders have participated and supplied data for the NAMC for over 15 years.  If you are interested in counting birds on May 9, see one of the following area compilers.
