Grassland Bird Trust is taking a year off from Winter Raptor Fest

Thank you to our “Winter Raptor Fest 2020 Goes Virtual” attendees, presenters, and volunteers! Grassland Bird Trust had a blast putting together our first virtual event for our raptor lovers. However, after a difficult 2020, Grassland Bird Trust has decided to take a year off from Winter Raptor Fest to rebuild our organization. We hope to come back in 2022 bigger and better than ever! We’d love to still have you around! Check out our primary website for updates.

Winter Raptor Fest will return live to the public in October 2022!

We hope to see you there!


Grassland Bird Trust (GBT) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit LAND TRUST permanently protecting critical habitat for endangered, threatened and at-risk grassland birds across and beyond New York State.  We’ve conserved or helped conserve over 250 acres of critical habitat since our founding in 2010. GBT is currently working on projects to conserve thousands more acres of critical habitat across the state!

There’s so much to do!
Conserving land for grassland birds, and the birds themselves, provide multiple benefits for humans – from protecting our food supply to preserving biodiversity to mitigating climate change! 

Grassland Birds need us – and we need them.

Help us expand grassland bird conservation across New York State and beyond. Your contribution will help permanently protect critical habitat for Short-eared owls and other imperiled grassland birds!
