Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's special Bird-at-home-a-thon event. Between the efforts of our participants and the generosity of our donors, 2020 turned out to be the biggest Bird-a-thon ever!
A record-high 1,600 participants collectively raised $330,000, recorded 242 species, and had 26 teams supporting different Mass Audubon wildlife sanctuaries and programs.
You can see photos from this year's spectacular event in the Bird-at-home-a-thon 2020 Digital Gallery.
