Bird-a-thon 2020 isn't over yet

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's family-friendly, carbon-free, safety-focused BIRD-AT-HOME-A-THON weekend! As stated in the new rules and revised point system, the winning team will be the one that earned the highest number of points between 6:00 pm on Friday, May 15, and 6:00 pm on Saturday, May 16.

How to Participate

While the birding, nature activities, and point-earning may be done, Bird-a-thon fundraising is still going strong.

Teams and participants have until mid-June to reach their fundraising goals. So don't stop now—you and/or your team could still bring home an award! Fundraising resources for 2020 participants >

About Bird-a-thon

Bird-a-thon, Mass Audubon’s largest annual fundraiser, brings together supporters from across the state to raise essential funds for nature conservation, education, and advocacy—and to compete in an exciting team birding competition. Each year, more than 800 birders work with their team members to see, hear, and identify as many bird species as possible in a 24-hour period. Team members and other supporters raise money for Mass Audubon sanctuaries and programs in honor of their participation. View last year's results >

Since Bird-a-thon began in 1983, thousands of dedicated supporters and team members have raised over $3 million for Mass Audubon, its sanctuaries, and its programs across the state.
