Programs are the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm from September through May, excluding December.  We normally meet at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Duluth, 835 West College Street, Duluth, but during the pandemic all programs will be online.   Free and open to all.

You can use our Duluth Audubon Society Birding Map to find the location of one of our guided group trips…or go on your own.  The eBird links are in the location titles. Most of these are also described on the Minnesota birding hotspots website and more info is at eBird.
