Whether you're inspired by a love of birds, concerned for the environment, or the sheer pleasure of being outdoors, the Audubon Birdathon is a great opportunity to do something positive for the planet- and have fun doing it!
The Audubon Birdathon takes place over a 24-hour period, during which you'll go outside and count as many different bird species as you can. Go birding for the entire 24 hours, do a single morning or afternoon session, or head outside for an hour here or there. You can either build a birding team online- gather teammates from anywhere around the country- or bird on your own.
Anyway you do it, every dollar you raise supports Audubon's work in New York to protect birds from the Long Island Sound and Atlantic Coast to the Great Lakes, across urban and suburban communities, and into the depths of our forests.
Beloved species like the Piping Plover and American Woodcock depend on our healthy coasts, wetlands and woodlands to survive. Our work helps make these important places more resilient for birds and people. You're doing a great thing by joining the Audubon Birdathon. Thank you!
