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. For example, this year we committed to give $9308 to 18 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. Though the Covid-19 outbreak has changed when these programs might happen, we plan to fulfill these commitments when as things return to normal in the near future.

Money from Birdathon 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 Birdathon team.

ANONYMOUS DONOR MATCHING CHALLENGE

This year we have had a special opportunity to expand our Addison County educational grants when an anonymous donor pledged to gift $4,000.  Historically with current funds, we have not been able to fully support all approved grants.  The additional donation pledge allowed us to fully fund the approved grants.  We are hoping for a successful Birdathon as all money raised will be matched dollar for dollar up to $4,000.00.  This will allow us to maintain our high level of educational participation throughout Addison County. 

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