Bird Story Hour

Tell a story. Hear a story. Celebrate birds.

Do you LOVE stories about birds? So do we! We warmly invite you to enjoy delightful evenings of birdy story-sharing. 

We welcome our Audubon community to share stories from all walks of life and all the ways we encounter birds. Like birds, our stories can be tiny beautiful moments or high-flying adventures. Whether it’s about the sparrow that crossed your path on a sidewalk or eagles cartwheeling across the sky, we’d love to hear about it. 

How does it work? Each story hour has a storytelling theme such as RAPTORS, NESTS, OR THE BIRDS WHO SAVED MY LIFE. You’re invited to share a five-minute tale (optional) via ZOOM. You are also welcome to just sit back and enjoy the show! Participate in whatever way makes you happy.  This is a safe and inclusive story-telling space. Come join us!

SAVE THE DATE: The next Bird Story Hour will be on April 20, 2023.
