Members receive the award winning magazine Bird Life six times a year. Each magazine features one project. These projects are fun, educational, participative and help develop responsibility.
One such project is the Big Garden Birdwatch which has been running for 18 years. Young people throughout the country spend an hour counting the types and numbers of bird species in their gardens. This information is collated and totalled to give the nations Wildlife Explorers Top Ten garden birds.

It has adopted set procedures for the appointment of staff and volunteers who work closely with young people and established guidelines for them to work to when organising events, wherever they are held
