Our mission is to promote education, conservation, and research focused on birds and to preserve and enhance the ecological diversity of the greater Duluth area.
DAS needs YOUR help to fund our mission. This includes speaker fees for our free monthly educational programs and exhibit costs for events we attend with our Audubon Society table. Currently, another expense is the re-printing of the popular Duluth / Superior Birding Map that is used to promote birding and conservation activities within our community. Learn more about this project below!
Duluth/Superior Birding Map
DAS needs to reprint its highly regarded Duluth /Superior Birding Map which is made available free of charge to birders, visitors, local organizations and the general public. The Duluth area boasts one of the most diverse bird watching spots in Minnesota and the mid-west, with sightings of over 24 species of warblers and boreal specialties like the Great Grey Owl, Boreal Chickadee, and Spruce Grouse, and over 16 species of migrating raptors. Our first printing of 5,000 birding maps was a success and was quickly exhausted. This was followed by a second printing of 2,500 maps. But, now these too are in short supply. DAS distributes the maps without charge at many popular bird watching sites, such as Hawk Ridge, Thompson Hill, Visit Duluth, and Boulder Lake Environmental Learning Center. Our goal is to print 5,000 new and updated birding maps. Once again, every donation, no matter the amount, will help us towards this goal.
THANK YOU for supporting the Duluth Audubon Society!
