Lynn Southey's Bird-a-thon Appeal
Waiting for a ride to the beach ... I'm hoping the little green herons will be back again this summer.
But first comes spring and Bird-a-thon, Mass Audubon’s annual birding competition and fundraiser. Teams from sanctuaries across Massachusetts raise funds and, for 24 hours on May 10-11, compete to find the most bird species.
I’m raising funds for Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary because of all it does to make where we live so special: from restoring rare coastal heathland habitats (and habitats for little green herons!) to rescuing cold stunned sea turtles and helping youngsters discover the wonders of the outdoors. Contributions help fund bird research such as mapping nesting Ospreys and protecting nesting terns and plovers as well as educational programs including a “bird science” curriculum in schools.
Your donation helps ensure that Wellfleet Bay can continue to provide these programs and foster habitats that protect birds and other wildlife. Thank you so much.
