Cindy's Wachusett Meadow Bird-a-thon Page
From May 14-15, nature heroes from all over Massachusetts will celebrate nature by participating in Mass Audubon's annual Bird-a-thon fundraiser!
During this event, teams representing different Mass Audubon wildlife sanctuaries or statewide programs recruit team members to participate in the fun while also raising funds to support Mass Audubon's work protecting the nature of Massachusetts.
This year is particularly special, because Mass Audubon is celebrating its 125th anniversary! The organization was founded in 1896 by two Boston women who used their voices to stop the slaughter of birds for fashion. Now, in 2021, Mass Audubon remains an independent organization at the forefront of conservation.
Why I'm Participating
I am raising money for Bird-a-thon because I believe that nature needs heroes now more than ever. I support Mass Audubon's efforts to profoundly engage the residents of Massachusetts in the importance of protecting nature for the benefit of people and wildlife..
Please support me and Mass Audubon's important work by making a donation through this page. Thank you!
Family and Friends! This is a critically important event in support of conservation, education, and advocacy at Wachusett Meadow Wildlife Sanctuary in Princeton, where I work, and something I have participated in for many years. Our team will be competing to identify as many bird species as possible in 24 hours. Bird-a-thon serves as a reminder of the variety and abundance of wildlife that surrounds us and our responsibility to preserve their habitats. Donations in any amount are very welcome and very much appreciated. Thanks!!
