April 22 - May 15
Spring is on its way, and so is Birdathon! It’s time to organize your teams and sign up for our annual spring migration birding competition.
The concept is simple: Participants can bird in teams of two to five. Team members then make their own donations or secure pledges from friends, family members, colleagues, neighborhood merchants, etc. Then, during any 24-hour period between April 22 and May 15, teams search Northern Virginia to see how many bird species they can identify. We’re also working on putting together a “Big Sit” Birdathon, which everyone will be invited to attend; more to come!
As in the past, we will be awarding prizes to members of the team that raises the most money and to the team that identifies the most species. And any individual who raises at least $250 will have his or her name entered in a drawing for a three-night winter birding stay at a bayfront residence in Ocean City, which can be taken between November 1, 2016 and April 1, 2017.
The two principal rules are Have Fun and Raise Funds. For the rest, click here.
