Help Us Reach Our Goal!


Fundraise for a Team

May 13-14, 2016

Since Bird-a-thon 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 that surrounds us and our role in protecting the habitats they call home.

Congratulations to team Drumlin Farm, 1st place in species recorded and winner of the Brewster Cup, with 238 species — the most species ever recorded by a team during Bird-a-thon! 2nd place in species recorded and winner of the Forbush Award is team Moose Hill with 230 species recorded.

The birding may be over, but you can still support Bird-a-thon by donating or fundraising. Team and individual fundraising results and awards are announced in mid-to-late June.

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
