Join a Team

There are multiple ways to be a part of a Bird-a-thon team.

Official Birders are listed on the team roster and their species records are counted towards the team total. To join a team’s birding roster, directly contact a team captain. Join a team on this website to create an online fundraising page to raise money for environmental protection in honor of your participation. You can also use this tool to track gifts collected offline.

Bird-a-thon Boosters are team members that bird “for fun” or choose to participate solely through fundraising. Join a team on this website to create a fundraising page in support of environmental protection and share your passion for Mass Audubon’s mission with friends and family. You can also use this tool to track offline gifts. To learn more about non-competitive birding opportunities, such as Bird-a-thon related programming, contact a team captain.


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.
