Mass Audubon's Largest Annual Fundraiser & Nature Celebration

Birdathon Banner 2022 1140

Because Birds Need Our Focus

Bird-a-thon brings birders, nature-lovers, and families together to celebrate nature and raise funds that provide essential year-round support for Mass Audubon's conservation, nature education, and advocacy work.

No matter if you join for the fun of it or for the thrill of competition (or both!), every team member has the opportunity to enjoy birds while raising or donating essential funds for Mass Audubon. 

Rally your friends and family to join you or support your fundraising efforts and go birding with us May 13-14!

Here's How It Works

This year, 13 teams representing different Mass Audubon regions and departments are raising money while helping people of all ages connect with nature in communities across the state (and beyond!).

During Bird-a-thon weekend, these teams will compete head-to-head in two ways:

  1. Fundraising to support bird conservation in their local regions
  2. Attempting to identify the greatest number of bird species in 24 hours
