Maine Audubon 12-Hour Birdathon
We've designed this fundraising event to be fun & educational for all levels of birders. Don't dismay if you are not an expert birder. Most people can ID more birds than they realize.
Put together a team and head out on May 16 to see how many birds you can spot between 6 am - 6 pm. We ask for a suggested minimum donation of $50 per person so please ask your friends & family to support you - and Maine Audubon. All money raised goes to Maine Audubon to support our mission of conserving wildlife and wildlife habitat.
We'll have categories for:
Best Story of the Day ※ Best Photo ※ Best Team Name
Most Birds Seen ※ Most Money Raised ※ Most "Green" Team
To sign up your team, or pledge to support a team go to: charity.gofundme.com/maine-audubon-birdathon
If you want some tips & tricks, come to Maine Audubon's Gilsland Farm Friday night, May 15 at 7:00 pm. We will have experienced birders here to give you advice on the best places to look for specific species.
