Help Margo raise funds for birds!
Even though we're all stuck at home this year, Bird-a-thon 2020 is happening! On May 15-16 I will be birding my yard and neighborhood and my teammates will be doing the same in theirs to see how many birds we can find close to home. While I'll miss the usual "hunt" for unusual species, I think we'll be pleasantly surprised to see how long our list will still get!
Bird-a-thon is always a great reminder of the wonderful natural world around us. And this year's "Bird-at-home-a-thon" will show everyone how much nature is right in their yards and local parks and natural spaces.
We're not doing the normal birding awards this year, but have set up a different kind of points system to get people engaged. The fundraising awards are still happening though, and my team typically vies for first place. With your help we can still be a top contender for the most money raised for birds and wildlife.
More important than any trophies or bragging rights is the critical work that these raised funds support. My colleagues in the Conservation Science Department and I spend every day managing habitat for wildlife, actively protecting wildlife, and learning more about birds and other wildlife so that we can better protect and conserve them.
My personal love for birds started casually when I was a kid, but grew tremendously when I had first-hand experience working with Common and Roseate Terns in Buzzards Bay 10 years ago. I am so grateful that since then I've been able to work for Mass Audubon and continuously learn from my fabulous colleagues.
I truly hope you will support my Bird-a-thon efforts this year and protect the wildlife of Massachusetts.
Giving through my Bird-a-thon webpage is a very secure process. If, however, you'd prefer to give via check, please send the check to my attention at Mass Audubon 208 S Great Road, Lincoln, MA 01773 with a note that says it is for "Science and Bird Conservation's Bird-a-thon team". Thank you!
