Bird Conservation Marketing - Promoting Conservation Through Birding

Indiana Young Birders Club


The Indiana Young Birders Club offers everything a young birder needs. Field trips, newsletters, conservation projects, outreach programs and of course many birding friends and contacts!

The IYBC also has a blog! Indiana Young Birders – Birding Today…Protecting Tomorrow

One unique thing that the Indiana Young Birders Club offers is a Fledgling membership for young birders up to age eleven. This is a five dollar membership and then the young birder membership is twenty dollars (ages 12 and up). What a great way to include the younger crowd (especially good for younger siblings of a young birder) and it preps them for future birding and conservation!

Here is a look at what is being planned for 2013!
February – Great Backyard Bird Count
May – Spring Migration Trip
May – Salamonie Bird Day
May – Young Birders Big Day Competition
May – Heron Rookery Trip
June – Goose Pond
June – Bio Blitz
August 24th – 1st IYBC Annual Conference!!!
November – IYBC Trip to OYBC Conference in Ohio
(check out last year’s conference!).

Some of the Indian Young Birders members attended the 2012 Ohio Young Birders Conference last year and I think we have a great shot at someday having a regional conference! We look forward to the first Indiana Young Birder Conference!

    I just caught this post and wanted to appreciate you for writing it. The IYBC is definitely a great club, among many others, and we are having so much fun. This year has already been so exciting and we are just getting started!

    In addition to our great events, the IYBC continues to be a resource for young birders that want their very own field guide. And, the program is simple. Just go to our website > guide giveaway > and complete the submission form which includes a short essay. That’s it!

    We too are hoping to have a Regional YB Conference someday!

    Thanks again for a great post supporting our club!!
