Dianna's BAT fundraising page
It is with a heavy heart that I am participating in Bird-a-thon from home this year due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Although I will deeply miss the camaraderie of finding birds with one of the most lovely group of people I have encountered, the plus side of this year's BAT is that it will be 100% carbon free as I will be birding my back yard and conservation areas that I will either walk or bike to!
In addition to finding some migrants, I hope to raise funds for Mass Audubon's education programs as I believe getting young children interested in nature is the best hope we have for the future of our planet. I realize that many of us are unemployed currently so I get it if you don't feel you can participate this year. Alternatively, any donation amount would be appreciated as I think we all realize how this pandemic is adversely affecting small businesses and nonprofits.
Thanks for reading (if you made it this far) and I hope you can enjoy the wonders of birds while cooped up at home!
