Mass Audubon Bird-a-thon 2022

West Team

Arcadia • Pleasant Valley

Welcome to Bird-a-thon, our largest community fundraiser! Our goal is to raise $36,000 in the West to protect the peace and beauty of our Western Mass sanctuaries for wildlife and visitors, support high quality environmental and climate change education programming for all ages, and fund conservation projects critical to the protection of our local wildlife. This year’s 24 hours of birding is from 6pm on Friday, May 13, to 6pm on Saturday, May 14 

Generous donors are matching gifts made to our team by Bird-thon's end on Saturday, the 14th. Double your dollars with a gift to make possible our conservation, education, and climate advocacy work.  

MAKING BIRDING ACCESSIBLE TO ALL! 

 Join us for our BIG SIT – a stationary, accessible birding event that makes space for everyone to feel welcome in the outdoors – no experience necessary!
