Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary
Team Moose Hill
From May 15-16, nature heroes from all over Massachusetts will focus on nature 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!
The centerpiece of Bird-a-thon 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. 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, 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. Learn more about the new rules for this year at www.massaudubon.org/birdathon.
Team Moose Hill is participating in Bird-a-thon because we believe in the importance of protecting the nature of Massachusetts for people and wildlife and Bird-a-thon is a great way to raise awareness of the work that we do while supporting some healthy competition among the staff and volunteers. This year is different, but also an opportunity to see so much more clearly what is in our own back yards and neighborhoods. Taking time to focus closer to home we may be surprised at how much wildlife there is!
Please join us in supporting this important work by making a donation through our team’s fundraising page. Every dollar really does count - and we would love to hear about your birding efforts on Facebook and Instagram. We have set a goal of $6,000 for the team - we are over half-way there and we will continue to raise funds through the end of June. We know you can help put us over the top!! As always, thank you for your support.
