‘Let’s Go Birding Together’ Creates a Dedicated Space for LGBTQ Bird Lovers

It's more than a bird walk: It's an inclusive experience for anyone who wants to connect to birds, the natural world, and others in a positive way.

The arrival of June marks Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month, “Pride Month” for short. Celebrations include pride parades, parties, and, in the case of Audubon New York, bird walks.

Our “Let's Go Birding Together” (LGBT) series was founded and organized by Jason St. Sauver, a Community Education director at Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center in Denton, Nebraska. This year, Audubon sites across the country have joined Jason in creating inclusive birding events – including our Audubon New York centers on Long Island and in the Hudson Valley, and Audubon chapters in New York City and Buffalo.

Let's Go Birding Together walks are for anyone who loves birds, likes birds, is vaguely interested in birds, or just wants something fun and different to do in the outdoors. We welcome those who identify as LGBTQ, allies, families, and anyone who wants to enjoy an outdoor experience that is inclusive.
