Each spring, birds from all over the United States and from all six continents travel to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and other ecologically rich areas of the American Arctic. Birds rely on these pristine habitats for nesting, breeding, staging, and molting.
Birdwatchers across the US can celebrate the importance of the Arctic by participating in this year's Great American Arctic Birding Challenge. Recruit some fellow birders (up to six per team), think of a snazzy team name, grab a pair of binoculars, and find as many different Arctic bird species as you can in your state.
Learn more and register your team online at ak.audubon.org/GAABC before May 1st!
