About this event:

Birdhouse, a project of Amplify the Future, founded  by Tykee James and Jeffrey Train in January 2020. As part of the Freedom Birders movement, it seeks to change the culture of bird watching in the United States by developing a racial justice curriculum and bird education project resourced by the lessons and inspiration of the Civil Rights Movement, the Freedom Riders, the Black Lives Matter Movement, the 1619 Project, and Black Birders Week. The Freedom Birdhouse, a virtual tour, explores the roots of their inspiration, and highlights the connection of the movement of people, observation of birds, and the recognition of land. This program will intersect with the Ohio Buckeye Trail, connecting the four corners of Ohio through nature trails.
