Bird-a-thon is our annual fundraiser where teams of birders spend 24 hours trying to spot the most species in Massachusetts.
Since the event began 1983, thousands of dedicated supporters and team members have raised more than $2 million to support Mass Audubon’s wildlife sanctuaries and programs across the state.
Bird-a-thon 2014 is over and we have raised nearly $213,000. Please join us next year for Bird-a-thon 2015 on May 15 & 16!!
Keep checking back for updates…and thank you for your support.
