The inaugural Black Birders Week will inspire a new generation of birders and nature-lovers. Happening now, Black Birders Week was featured by the Audubon Society and government agencies, including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Refuge System.

The event aims to increase visibility of Black birders, who face challenges and dangers that non-Black people do not experience when recreating or conducting fieldwork in the outdoors.

To many Americans, wilderness represents freedom and a space that should be open to all. In reality, it is not. Black Birders Week is a way for Black birders, who may have not seen another Black birder, to join together and encourage more participation and diversity in outdoor spaces.

Here’s how you can participate and follow along in many inspiring stories straight from Black birders and outdoor enthusiasts, while learning some unforgettable science:

Sunday, May 31: Yesterday, Black Birders Week kicked off with the hashtag #BlackInNature to celebrate Black nature enthusiasts everywhere. The hashtag was filled with individuals from Black scientists to nature-lovers showing what they love about nature and how they were introduced to it.

Monday, June 1: Today, you can participate in the #PostABird challenge. Include a fun fact about the bird you post. The facts that are posted range from folklore to weird biology facts!

Tuesday, June 2: Tomorrow, #AskABlackBirder between 7:00 and 9:00 pm EST on Twitter.

Thursday, June 4: Features a livestream discussion on #BirdingWhileBlack from7:00 to 8:30 pm EST.

Friday, June 5: After the inspiring events earlier in the week, you can continue to celebrate diversity in the outdoors by following #BlackWomenWhoBird.
