On May 12-13, 2017 over 750 people from all over Massachusetts will focus on nature and participate in Mass Audubon’s annual Bird-a-thon fundraiser. 

The main event is a 24-hour birding competition where teams representing different Mass Audubon sanctuaries and programs attempt to identify the most species of birds in a 24-hour period and raise the most dollars to support our mission of protecting the nature of Massachusetts.

Our team - GORDON's GAGGLE - is named for Gordon Hall -- the building at Mass Audubon headquarters where many of us work. Gordon Hall is named for the Gordon family who lived in this stately home and whose matriarch Louise Ayer Gordon Hatheway (1876-1955) bequeathed this land and property to Mass Audubon, which is now Mass Audubon headquarters and Drumlin Farm. 

In the early 1900s, Louise and her husband Donald Gordon invited urban children to visit their farm and property to learn where their food came from and to appreciate the natural world around them. For many decades, the Gordon's legacy has inspired our mission of environmental education, advocacy, and conservation!

Please join us in supporting our critical work by making a donation through our team’s fundraising page.
