Black Birders Week is a national campaign involving a week-long series of events that encourages the involvement of Black individuals in the past-time of birding and amplifies issues of cultural inclusivity in green spaces. Birding is a wonderful hobby, learning experience, and a great way to spend time outdoors. It is crucial to the values of any outdoor enthusiast community that there is equitable access to the outdoors for everyone. Promoting and demonstrating inclusivity reinforces efforts to address historical discrimination in nature-based outdoor recreation activities.
