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. For example, this year we committed to give $5103 to 10 Addison County classrooms to fund field trips and class projects. We have also awarded a scholarship to a local teacher to the National Audubon Society’s Hog Island camp in Maine. Some of these programs will be delayed due to the pandemic, but we will fulfill these commitments when possible.

Money from Bird-a-thon also goes to support our Cabin Fever Lecture Series, Otter Tracks Newsletter and many other programs, none of which 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 Bird-a-thon team.

You can participate by using the printable or by donating online with the button on our Donate page.
