Birdathon is the chapter's biggest fundraiser and over the past two years has raised over $7,000. That's a lot of moolah to be used for our conservation and education projects! It's easy to do. Call up your favorite birding friends and form a team. Each team should have at least 2 members. Fill out a team registration form (Team Reg Form 2016 ) and send it in with a $50 donation fee to Sacajawea Audubon. Then call up all your family, friends, hair stylists, insurance agents, yoga instructors, etc. and collect pledges. They can pledge per species or a set amount. Schedule a day to do your Birdathon between now and June 26th. You can do a full day or half day. You can bird in your backyard, or cover a 3-county area. You can even do a Birdathon in another state!
There are all sorts of awards to compete for: Most Bird Species, Most $$ Raised, Most Pledges, Most Magpies, Most Raptors, Carbon Footprint Award, Most Species in an Important Bird Area, Most Bird Species in a Half-Day, etc. There will be a Awards Party at E. Gallatin Recreation Area on June 30th. How can you pass up this much fun?
