Sullys Hill Learning Center near Devils Lake is now an interactive bird and wildlife education facility, as a result of Audubon’s collaborative partnership with the US Fish & Wildlife Service. Now that the construction phase is done, we are excited to engage a diverse range of conservation partners and new constituents, including birders, students, farmers/landowners, and families in learning about, enjoying, and protecting our unique Prairie Potholes.

Audubon Falcon Project – Locally, Audubon has ‘teamed up’ with Dakota Ace and Miracle, the pair of Peregrine Falcons who have faithfully taken up residence in downtown Fargo, to bring birds to people in real time. Next breeding season Audubon Dakota will have an enhanced web cam focused on their manmade nest atop of Bank of the West. A brand new nesting structure is under construction and scheduled for installation before the next breeding season. Additionally, Audubon is upgrading the technology to introduce audio sound to the webcam, and expanding the reach of its output.

Social Media – Recognizing the importance of the emerging media reach, Audubon Dakota has increased its social media profile by adding Facebook, Google+, Flickr (Yahoo), UStream, Vimeo, YouTube, and twitter accounts. This integrated online social profile has allowed our program to engage significantly more supporters, while simultaneously introducing our brand to new audiences. With the support and mentorship of the Board of Stewards, Audubon Dakota will expand on this success with new ways to enhance the importance of birds and our natural habitats.
