2019 LaBagh UpDate

An update on our 2019 “Fundraiser for the Birds” for LaBagh Woods. Between the event, held on May 18, 2019 at Galway Arms, and donations, more than an inspiring $18,000 was raised! A huge thank you goes out to each and every one of you who opened your hearts (and your wallets) to put the continuation of our restoration efforts at LaBagh on such a sound financial footing. We could not do this without your support. The results of this fundraiser show that we have it in spades. The Chicago birding community (and their friends and family) is the best!

All planting days start at 10:00 am and end around 1:00 pm. Gloves and tools are provided –all you need to do is show up at LaBagh and bring water and sturdy shoes (use the entrance off Cicero Street just north of Foster)!

Bird Friendly Chicago is an alliance to promote a safer urban environment for birds through improved lighting, landscaping and glass features of buildings. COS encourages you to declare your support for a new building ordinance to protect migratory birds from the tragedy of glass collisions in our city.

COS maintains an eBird account with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Our presence on eBird is primarily for sharing field trip checklists, keeping track of bird monitoring for conservation projects, and transcribing historical observations from paper checklists from some of our legendary Chicago area birders.
