    Not to be missed, the 10th Annual Sedona Hummingbird Festival is held at the peak of Sedona’s hummingbird season on July 26-28.  As many as 8 species in the area, and typically five times the number of hummers as in early summer. Located in the heart of Sedona’s red rock country, the festival features 14 different speaker presentations on various hummingbird topics, hummingbird garden tours, banding demonstrations, birding field trips, sunrise hummingbird breakfasts, a hummingbird marketplace filled with hummingbird-related gifts, a photo contest, and workshops on hummingbird photography, painting, and communication. This is where hummingbird enthusiasts gather together to learn the latest about hummers and celebrate the science and wonder of these amazing birds!

    Thanks to Sedona’s high altitude of 4,500 feet, the temperature is cooler than in more southern parts of Arizona, and lodging is lower at this time of year. Participants can also enjoy Sedona’s Red Rock Scenic Byway (7.5 miles), Oak Creek Canyon, Scenic Jeep Tours, miles of hiking trails, mountain biking, winemaking, and galleries. There is no prettier place in America to see hummers.

    Having been a member of the National Audubon Society for longer than she can remember and as a current member of two Audubon chapters (NAAS and Pasadena), Dr. Nancy Steele is excited to join the board of NAAS. She brings her skills from over three decades of running nonprofits and serving on nonprofit boards. She also brings her curiosity and research skills and is excited about the opportunities at NAAS to promote bird research and conservation.

    Nancy is recently retired from her job as Executive Director of Friends of the Verde River, which she served from 2018 through 2023. She served as ED of Council for Watershed Health in Los Angeles from 2005 – 2015, and as interim ED for two organizations from 2016 - 2018. She founded the Arroyos &amp; Foothills Conservancy in 2000 and served as its President/CEO from 2000 – 2011, and as its Director of Conservation in 2017.

    NAAS is so pleased that Nancy chose our conservation organization to work with in her retirement. As we head into the age of Motus research, her knowledge and experience will be extremely valuable.

    Arizona is at a crossroads. Our water is at risk if we don't take action.

    In 80% of the state, groundwater pumping is unlimited. This makes Arizona communities easy targets for outside interests to set up shop, take advantage of our lax groundwater laws, and extract limited groundwater resources for free.

    Urge your legislators and Governor Hobbs to protect our precious water resources for generations to come.

    We are gathering signatures and will send the letter to Governor Katie Hobbs and Arizona legislators at the beginning of the legislative session in January 2024.

    Answer this Action Alert to stop the Ambler Road in the Brooks Range where thousands of acres of wetlands and migration pathways will be affected.

    The proposed Ambler industrial mining road would be an irreversible blow to the Brooks Range and would open the floodgate to widespread and destructive mining operations across Northwest Alaska. This proposed 211-mile, private, industrial access corridor would run through the Arctic's critical caribou and bird habitat, salmon and sheefish spawning areas, and the Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve. Fifteen species of boreal birds found along the proposed Amber Road corridor, including the Blackpoll Warbler and Olive-sided Flycatcher, already face significant decline across their ranges and would be directly impacted by the road.

    Avian Point-Count Technicians in Four Corners National Parks

    Spend your summer doing field work in the beautiful National Parks of the Southern Colorado Plateau! We are looking for field technicians to conduct breeding bird point-count surveys as part of a long-term monitoring plan for the National Parks.

    PROJECT DATES: Early April – early July 2024

    TRAINING: The field season will begin with a three-week intensive training period focusing on field safety and implementation of unlimited-radius point counts with distance sampling. Field crews should aim to have a good knowledge of the songs and calls of southwestern birds before the training period begins and will participate in online review sessions of bird songs prior to the in-person training period.
