Spread your wings for conservation and migrate to the Alaska Zoo to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Migratory Bird Treaty! ‚Äč 

The Migratory Bird Treaty forms the cornerstone of our nation’s efforts to conserve birds that migrate across international borders, and this year we invite you to gather your flock and join us for this special Migratory Bird Treaty Centennial event.  

Explore hands-on activity stations, games, kid’s craft station, winning Jr. Duck Stamp artwork, live education birds from Bird TLC, and much more! This year the Alaska Zoo will also be hosting a beer and wine garden with partners from the Alaskan Brewing Co. and the Alaska Denali Winery. 

Event partners include U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Audubon Alaska, Alaska Migratory Bird Co-Management Council and the Alaska Zoo. This event is fun and educational for visitors of all ages!
