Help Us Reach Our Goal!


Fundraise for a Team

May 13-14, 2016

Bird-a-thon, our annual fundraiser where teams of birders spend 24 hours trying to spot the most species in Massachusetts, kicks off at 6 pm on May 13.

Since the event began in 1983, thousands of dedicated supporters and team members have raised over $2 million for Mass Audubon, its sanctuaries, and its programs across the state. Bird-a-thon serves as a reminder of the variety and abundance of wildlife and habitat that surrounds us and our role in protecting it.

There are many ways to be a part of Bird-a-thon. There is no one size fits all, mix and match as it suits you!

Fundraise for a Team

A wide variety of community members from across the state show their support by fundraising for a team. You do not need to be a competitive birder to fundraise for Bird-a-thon, our Bird-a-thon Boosters fundraise for Bird-a-thon while birding for fun or not birding at all. All support is welcome and appreciated. Fundraise for a Team
