Thank you for being a part of Bird-a-thon.

Bird-a-thon began in 1983 as a way to channel the excitement of a birding competition into a community building fundraiser for Mass Audubon’s wildlife sanctuaries and programs. Since its inception in 1983, thousands of team members have raised over $2 million to support Mass Audubon’s work to protect the nature of Massachusetts through conservation, education, and advocacy.

Bird-a-thon 2017 ran from 6:00 pm on May 12 through 6:00 pm on May 13.

There is Still Time to Support a Team


Bird for fun or do your own “focus on nature” activity during Bird-a-thon and support your favorite Mass Audubon program or sanctuary. Create a fundraising page by selecting a team to support, and then raise money from friends and family and/or fundraise offline.


Support a Mass Audubon sanctuary or program by donating to Bird-a-thon.

Your Bird-a-thon donation is greatly appreciated and helps to protect the nature of Massachusetts for people and wildlife. Donate to an individual, donate to a team, or make a general Bird-a-thon donation.

To make a gift offline, please print, complete, and mail in the Bird-a-thon donation form or send a check with “Bird-a-thon” in the memo field to your chosen sanctuary or program.
