Our IBA Program encourages nominations of potential IBAs from people with a good knowledge of the potential sites and a desire to do something to benefit bird conservation. If you know of a place that you think is important for birds in Maryland or the District of Columbia, please consider nominating it as an IBA.
Steps to nominate an Important Bird Area:
- Contact the Maryland-DC IBA Coordinator, David Curson (410-558-2473, to find out if your site has already been nominated. See our list of IBAs in Maryland and DC for sites currently recognized.
- Read criteria for site selection of IBAs.
- Print, fill out, and mail in a nomination form.
