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 Birdathon fundraiser. All the money raised will go to support our educational and outreach programs including:

  • Conducting birding classes and field trips in area schools
  • Sponsoring a local educator or student to attend Hog Island Audubon Camp in Maine
  • Providing grants for teacher-organized programs and field trips
  • Offering Cabin Fever lectures
  • Hosting events at Dead Creek Wildlife Day
  • Holding a Beginning Birders Walk for all ages at Wright Park in Middlebury. 

Teams are already forming!  All teams are expecting to enjoy a day in nature and hoping for your support toward funding our education programs.  Any group or individual can forma team.

You can learn how to participate by using the printable form or support us directly by donating online with the button on our Donate page.
