Birds and Brews Map
Fall is a great time to get outside and explore new birding hot spots in the West. But a long day spent birding can leave you parched, which is why this month, we are sharing our new Birds and Brews map with you.

Audubon has history working with brewers in the West. In the past couple of years, Audubon held several well-attended events to bring attention and visibility to partnerships with breweries and other business leaders that are addressing drought and working toward solutions. In 2017, we hope to extend our outreach to breweries that rely on Colorado River water, with a particular focus on small- and medium-sized breweries in Arizona and Colorado. Brewers are a natural audience for water sustainability discussions, as water is the main ingredient in the beer-making process.

Speaking of which, we currently have a short window of opportunity to advocate for sustainable water use. If you haven’t already, please send a quick email to the Bureau of Reclamation. We will be delivering your comments this Friday, October 28.

Enjoy exploring our map and we hope you’ll toast all the people working to protect and restore birding hot spots with every sip!

Keeping Beer and Rivers Flowing in Arizona
When we say that everyone has a role to play as we work together to create a stable and vibrant future for Arizona, who comes to mind? Policy makers, government agencies, municipalities, water providers, and individual advocates certainly make the list, but what about breweries? To find the answer, take a trip to Gilbert and visit Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co., the Phoenix suburb’s first craft brewery and Audubon Arizona’s Birds n’ Beer partner. Read more.
