Department of Defense Legacy Resource Management Program

Avian Knowledge Network

The Avian Knowledge Network (AKN) is a collaborative effort between a multitude of stakeholders to facilitate and enhance bird conservation. The AKN is comprised of three main components which allow it to achieve its goals:

  • Stakeholders (which are people from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines including state and federal agencies, NGOs, citizen scientists, biologists, conservation practitioners, programmers and land managers);
  • Technology; and
  • Data.

The Legacy Program has provided long-term, sustained funding to AKN since 2017. To learn more about AKN, please visit
