Black Birders Week

May 1, 2024

Join us in celebrating Black Birders Week 2024 by getting outside, spending time with community, and learning about the birds of the East Bay.

The week-long program series is a collaboration between Park District naturalist staff, Park District Black Employee Collective members, and local, Black-led organizations to create safe spaces for guided discussions about Black experiences and the outdoors, while exploring and enjoying the parks of the East Bay. This year, we will be kicking the week off with a conference in celebration of Black people in the STEM field with speakers and tables hosted by local organizations.

All programs are free. Coffee, snacks, binoculars, and birding books are provided. Everyone is welcome.
