Birds are an ideal symbol for the importance of light and air in a livable city. New York City sits within one of the American Flyways, which hosts year-round bird species and provides stopover habitat for migratory species. Birds rely on green spaces in the city for habitat and forage, which require access to natural light to thrive. EXPLORE BIRDS is a mobile bird education program. Its mission is to engage New Yorkers in urban bird life and diversity, offering self-directed, hands-on exploration of bird specimens and participatory learning.
