Once again this May teams of OCAS birding volunteers will spend a 24-hour period scouring Addison County to find as many species as we can for our annual Bird-a-thon fundraiser. All the money raised will go to support our educational and outreach programs. This year, we have committed to give $2500 to Addison County schools to fund field trips and class projects, have assisted with birding classes in local classrooms and are helping to send a student to the National Audubon Society’s Hog Island camp in Maine. None of these things would be possible without your financial support. You can help us out by either pledging an amount for each species found, giving us a flat gift, or by creating your own Birdathon team. For more information please read our flyer:
