Personal Fundraising Page
I am always proud to tell folks that I work for Mass Audubon because I get to make a difference every day and help preserve the beautiful wildlife across the state. This past year has been really hard for us with the inability to hold in person programs and events and the temporary closure of our shops and Nature Centers, which are all major ways of procuring funding for all of the conservation work that we do. Bird-A-Thon is our annual fundraiser similar to a 5K but with teams of bird nerds who compete in a 24-hour birding competition May 14-15.
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..
