What is Bird-A-Thon?
A Bird-A-Thon is a fundraiser, similar to a walk or jog-a-thon where
individuals, or teams, count the total number of bird species seen or
heard in a 24 hour period. Each counter solicits pledges from
friends, relatives, neighbors, businesses or corportations for each
bird species identified during their chosen 24 hour period.
Need a good reason to join us?
By participating, you will:
*Have fun while raising critical funds to conserve birds, other
