Martha Gach's Bird-a-Thon Page
Mass Audubon remains a steadfast champion for birds - and all nature, as it has for the past 100+ years. Mass Audubon protects land, advocates for solid legislation to protect the nature of Massachusetts, and educates young and old about our environment. We create sanctuaries to protect wildlife, and to help people enjoy the nature around them. Here in Worcester, we strive to provide access for ALL people, regardless of ability, to experience the wonder of the outdoors as independently as they wish. YOUR SUPPORT IS CRITICAL TO OUR MISSON.
From May 10-11 over 750 people from all over Massachusetts will focus on nature by participating in Mass Audubon’s annual Bird-a-thon fundraiser.
The centerpiece of Bird-a-thon is a 24-hour birding competition where teams representing different Mass Audubon sanctuaries and programs attempt to identify the most species of birds in a 24-hour period. Bird-a-thon serves as a reminder of the variety and abundance of wildlife that surrounds us and our responsibility to preserve their habitats.
Why I am participating in Bird-a-thon? Because it's a fun way to protect the nature of Massachusetts for people and wildlife. Broad Meadow Brook provides a pathway for connecting people with the outdoors, helping children learn to care for the environment, immersing adults in the peace of nature, and providing a home for lots of different wildlife. I have worked here a long time because I fully support Broad Meadow Brook's - and Mass Audubon’s - efforts to protect and steward the environment of Massachusetts.
Our team goal is to see more than 140 species of birds during this 24-hour period, and to raise money to support Broad Meadow Brook Wildlife Sanctuary and Conservation Center. Please join me in supporting this important work by making a donation though my personal fundraising page. Thank you!
