The centerpiece of Bird-a-thon is a 24-hour (May 10-11), birding competition where teams representing different Mass Audubon sanctuaries and programs attempt to identify the most species of birds in a 24-hour period.
Joppa Flats Education Center's team loves birding and seeing great stuff, but we limit ourselves to Essex County. We save a lot of gasoline birding locally. And really, we don't care about state-wide competitions for numbers of species seen. We focus on fund raising to support our fabulous programming here at Joppa Flats and at Rough Meadows, our community outreach, and our need to protect the nature of Massachusetts for people and wildlife.
In this time of anthropogenic climate change and cutbacks in support for the environment, our mission is even more critical. Please help out to whatever degree you can. When you make a donation here, you'll feel better knowing that you have invested in us, the world, and the future.
