Hi friends who love birds!
If you are into birding and conservation or both, you may be interested in
forming a team and competing in The Green Big Day, kicking off April 23 and
ending May 8, 2011! Check out www.greenbigday.org to sign up (free) or
search green big day on Facebook. You don't need to be a super birder to do
this, and a bunch of Green Big Day county records are just waiting to be
set. Just form a small team of 2 or more, sign up at the website, go
birding for a 24 hour period without using any gasoline (hiking, biking,
kayaking, etc.), and submit your results by May 15.
This event is not a fundraiser per se, but participants can raise money on
their own (bird-a-thon style) for their favorite non-profits. I encourage
you to pass the word so we can see green big days happening all over the
country this spring!
I would appreciate your feedback, and feel free to contact me personally if
you have questions or want to serve on the planning committee.
Take care and good birding!
W. Scott Smithson, M.S.
