Did you know that West Virginia has more Cerulean Warblers and Wood Thrush than any other state? We also have abundant Scarlet Tanagers, Red-eyed Vireos, American Redstarts, and more.
Are you under age eighteen, and are you interested in learning more about our state’s amazing birds? Then the West Virginia Young Birder’s Club may be the place for you! Our mission is to promote a healthy lifestyle through birding while encouraging an appreciation for West Virginia’s native wild birds and Appalachian ecosystems. We host bird walks and other events in cooperation with other organizations and groups, and eventually we plan to host an annual conference. We are open to kids (and parents, and supporters) of all ages, although some events may be age-specific. Check back here often for updates!
The West Virginia Young Birders Club is a project of the Avian Conservation Center of Appalachia, a 501c3 nonprofit organization based in Morgantown, WV.
