Our Mission: To bring the excitement of birds to our community through birding, education and the conservation of bird habitats


Maybe you have heard of Birdathon? Maybe not. It is our annual fundraiser where we all go out trying to find as many species as possible in a day or for the whole weekend. This year we will kick it up a notch (just like the Food Network) and have some extra activities and prizes! We already have a commitment from Eagle Optics for a pair of binoculars…and we are going to solicit a few local restaurants for gift certificates. We welcome small teams, big teams, individual efforts, and everything in-between. We will be adding a barbecue to celebrate the day and give all participants some swag for just being a part of the day. Mark your calendars for April 28-30. Birdathon is a celebration of birds as we raise dollars for our programs and operating expenses. BIRDATHON is all weekend with the barbecue on the 29th. (Many more details in the April issue of The Wrentit, including information about participating teams.) We need folks to help, so call Deni Sinnott or Kym Buzdygon if you want to get in on this! You don’t want to miss out on the best birding fun of the year!
