General Information:

Discover the sport of birding with Birding Drives Dakota (BDD), a nonprofit organization lead by volunteers from the Carrington and Jamestown area to promote economic development in central North Dakota through nature-based tourism focused on birding. 

BDD, in conjunction with local national wildlife refuges, and with the support of other state and local agencies and businesses, has developed a network of local birding trails mapped in full-color birding guides who are designed to help birders of all ages and levels explore the richness of North Dakota, which boasts more than 300 species of birds.

While instilling a sense of stewardship for our wildlife environment in our communities, BDD is dedicated to attracting a growing number of birding tourists each year (more than 22 million American birders travel each year to enjoy the sport) by developing central North Dakota’s reputation nationwide as the prime birding attraction that it is.

In large part due to the efforts of BDD, the Jamestown/Carrington area has been named in the recently published book, "Fifty Places to Go Birding Before You Die: Birding Experts Share The World's Greatest Destinations."  

To celebrate the joy of birding, join BDD at the 14th Annual Potholes & Prairie Birding Festival June 14 – 18, 2017 in Carrington, North Dakota which offers four days of tours guided by experts, seminars given by professionals, and fun socials.
