Bonnie and Casey's Fundraising Page
On May 10-11, hundreds of 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 the 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.
This year, we are raising money for Bird-a-thon because we believe in the importance of protecting the nature of Massachusetts for people and wildlife. Mass Audubon played a major role in devloping our interest in birding which has provided us with a theraputic source of joy and wonder and connected us with many interesting people. We support Mass Audubon’s efforts to protect and steward the environment of Massachusetts through conservation, education, and advocacy.
We joined the Moose Hill team and ended up getting second place by two species. Bonnie and I ended up seeing about 80 species and contributed a couple uncommon species like snowy owl and purple sandpiper. An article about the winning team was just published in the Boston Globe.
