Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary
From May 15-16, nature heroes from all across Massachusetts will focus on nature, especially birds, by participating in Mass Audubon’s annual Bird-a-thon fundraiser. Due to COVID-19, this will be the organization’s first Bird-at-home-a-thon, which will be carbon-free, safety-focused, and family-friendly!
Teams representing different Mass Audubon sanctuaries and programs will come together to collectively identify as many species of birds in a 24-hour period and also complete other fun, nature-based activities from their home. Bird-a-thon serves as a reminder of the variety and abundance of wildlife that surrounds us and our responsibility to preserve their habitats.
The Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary team is participating in Bird-a-thon because we believe in the importance of protecting the nature of Massachusetts for people and wildlife. Mass Audubon’s efforts to protect and steward the environment of Massachusetts through conservation, education, and advocacy remains critical.
