Bird-a-thon 2012 Ė May 11 & 12
Get your binoculars ready! Bird-a-thon, our annual fundraiser where teams of birders spend 24 hours trying to spot the most species in Massachusetts, will kick off a 6 pm on May 11.
Aside from the glory of taking home a coveted prize, our team members stay up late and wake up at the crack of dawn to help raise money for our wildlife sanctuaries, as well as for many of our research and conservation programs.
You donít have to be out in the field to be a part of Bird-a-thon. You can make a difference by raising money for your local wildlife sanctuary or a Mass Audubon program thatís important to you.
