“See your urban environment as how a bird would: The buildings are cliffs and green areas are an oasis for nesting, resting and feeding.” – David Lindo, The Urban Birder
Cuyahoga County is just under 20 percent forest and, in fact, is home to the second largest city in Ohio—Cleveland. This presents a great opportunity for urban birding, and for many people, this opportunity can be found right outside our front door, workplace, or school. You don’t have to travel far to connect with nature, and nature needs you now more than ever before.
Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society is launching Urban Birding Cleveland to connect people of all walks of life to the birds in their communities with the purpose of raising awareness about local wildlife and the importance of conserving and growing habitat for our resident and migratory birds.
