Mass Audubon Bird-a-thon

North Shore Wildlife Sanctuaries

North Shore Sanctuaries Team

Ipswich River • Joppa Flats • Endicott


Thank you for visiting the North Shore Bird-a-thon page. This annual event is both fun and crucially important to Joppa Flats Education Center, Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary, our Nature Preschool at Endicott, and more than a dozen other sanctuaries on the North Shore.

Bird-a-thon serves as a reminder of the variety and abundance of wildlife that surrounds us, and our responsibility to preserve their habitat. The funds we raise during Bird-a-thon go directly to the North Shore sanctuaries and support our efforts to protect nature for wildlife and for people.

There are lots of ways to get involved in our Bird-a-thon efforts on the North Shore:
