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

And more...
