2010 IMBD Theme Focuses on Partnerships
| Celebrate the partnerships that make your bird conservation programs a success and the 20th anniversary of Partners in Flight in 2010. IMBD will focus on the "Power of Partnerships" in bird conservation. The art, which will be created by Bob Petty of Montana, will feature 20 species of birds whose conservation has benefited from partnerships from South America to Canada. Information and event materials focusing on the theme will be highlighted on the website each month. If you have suggestions, ideas, or want to be involved in the theme development, please contact Susan Bonfield at Sbonfield@aol.com.|

|Connecting People with Nature Through Birds|
The National Conservation Training Center's course, Connecting People to Nature Through Birds, once again received high marks from participants. Course evaluations included these comments:
I feel capable now to guide bird watching programs.
I loved this course!
I can now improve my own birding skills with greater confidence.
In 2010, the course will be held from June 21-24th. Sign-up early, because the course fills quickly.
