24 Hours for Fun and Profit!!


Anna's Hummingbird

March is Bird-A-Thon month, and teams have a fun day just counting birds to support our Chapter. In 2015, we collected over $10,000 - all of which was used for educational and conservation programs, such as the popular Junior Audubon. The funds also provide Audubon Adventures, a FREE resource kit for teachers to use in their 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classes. Lincoln School's half-day Bird Festival for all students benefits from money earned. Sponsors (you) are the backbone of a successful Bird-A-Thon. Teams will contact you and ask for your support. Please be generous by sponsoring a team with a pledge of 10 cents to whatever amount per bird species, or even a set amount. The Team will contact you after their day of birding to accept your donation with thanks.
