The James A. Kushlan Bird Conservation program at Fairchild is composed of numerous bird conservation related activities. You will find a brochure that outlines all elements of the Dr. James A. Kushlan Bird Walk at the Visitor Center and information booths. A bird checklist, highlighting some of the birds you may encounter at Fairchild is also included with the brochure. Throughout the Kushlan Bird Walk, interpretation and birding hotspots educate visitors from the birding novice to experts alike.
While exploring the Kushlan Bird Walk, visitors may choose to take a rest on one of the many tribute benches honoring important ornithologists and conservationists. Bird boxes and feeders will be placed in strategic locations throughout the garden and Kushlan Bird Walk and will help attract more birds to Fairchild. Plans are also underway for waterbird habitat enhancements.
