The official birding start period for Birdathon 2019 begins Monday, April 15, and lasts until June 15. This year the Birdathon aims to raise $90,000 for the Bird Protection Fund, and with early team fundraising and fundraiser field trip registrations, we’re well on our way to our goal.
From the youth teams of Mr. Dargatz’s Nature Kindergarten and Wilder’s Wild Warbler Watchers, to the veteran Birdathoners of the Cutright’s Old Coots and Reckless Wrens, the Birdathon is for all ages and skill levels. We encourage environmental organizations to participate and take half their earnings back home for their own projects. Visit the Birdathon website to sign up and read about the top teams, the photo contest, and our Bird(athon) and Beers! kickoff event. Follow us on Facebook for team stories and birding news throughout the season.
Will the Secretary Birds break 200 species this year? Will the Old Coots break their fundraising record–again? How many miles will our green teams log with their bikes and kayaks? We’re looking forward to another season of stories and fun. Birdathon on!
