Event Description
(For adults & teens) Gather your flock and join the 2022 Green Birding Challenge as a part of the Brew City Birding Festival! This program inspires fossil-fuel-free, friendly competition among all levels of birders and encourages everyone to explore the wonders of resident and migratory birds in Milwaukee. 

Gather your flock and register for the Green Birding Challenge! Are you a serious birder? Register on this page for our 5-hour, competitive Soaring Eagle challenge. Just starting out, want to look for birds as a family, or just hang out? You'll want the noncompetitive, 3-hour Rockin' Robin Challenge (8:00a-12:30p). Both challenges include lunch.

Remember that teams are limited to four birders. The deadline to register and to be guaranteed a t-shirt is Friday, March 18th at noon. The deadline to register is by 11:59pm on May 8.
